Belvedere British School Abu Dhabi is a place that strives to maintain the motto of Ad Vitum Paramus-Preparation for Life. We incorporate this motto into our curriculum through providing global, local and community topics to broaden the thinking of our Belvedere British School students.
This curriculum will allow them to relate to each other, their community and the world. We embed this thinking into how we learn and how we can be the best we can be. We are committed to building and developing a school that will “Prepare” its students to contribute and participate in society and students that have the confidence and the desire to learn.
Our Strategic Partners
Mission and Vision
Our pupils receive a robust, challenging and inspiring 21st Century education, preparing them for life and making the primary schooling years and enjoyable time filled with rich and memorable experiences.
Each child’s unique skills and talents are discovered and enhanced in an environment of care and respect; one that promotes resilience, confidence, self-esteem and self-management skills. BBS provides a creative, vibrant and academic education; one where expectations are high but aspirations for each and every child are higher.
In a culture of collaboration and cooperation where pupils are taught to value diversity, our pupils are encouraged to work individually and with each other. Children will also be encouraged to be thinkers, creators and self-directed learners, but equally respectful of others, displaying positive thinking, behaviour and attitudes at all times. Children will be guided to appreciate al cultures as the UAE is a multicultural society.
The School’s curriculum will combine traditional teaching and learning practices with the best contemporary and innovative approaches. High standards in literacy and numeracy will be a priority with these subjects taught daily in timetabled lessons. Alongside these fundamental skills, will be the more creative aspects of the programme.
During the children’s academic year, the school will teach them different Topics which will allow the children to explore subjects such as history, geography, science, art in a meaningful and interconnected way. We have chosen this programme to reflect our value of the importance of our young people having an awareness of local, national and global issues.
Additionally, our children will benefit from specialist and expert teaching across the curriculum with enhanced opportunities for exploring the arts (art, music, drama), fostering an appreciation of culture and language (languages programme), growing personally, socially and emotionally and developing a sense of team work, leadership and physical well-being through physical education, sport and collaborative work.
We are proud for our children’s achievements, not only of our academic results, but also for their performance in a wide range of areas, which include sports, music and art.
