Al Basma British School

Al Basma

Al Basma British School was established in 1980 by Dr Abdulla Abdul Jalil Al Fahim.  The school previously operated from six spacious villas located in the centre of Abu Dhabi.  Following the announcement by the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) that all villa schools operating in Abu Dhabi were required to relocate to provide more modern and student-focused learning facilities the school commissioned a new purpose built school in Al Bahia.  Al Basma British School aim to provide a world-class yet affordable British-standard education to families in the local and international communities of Abu Dhabi.
