About Cranleigh Abu Dhabi

Cranleigh Abu Dhabi opened its doors in September 2014 with similar aims of supporting the establishing Saadiyat Island community. From 2011 to 2014, teams from Abu Dhabi and Cranleigh UK worked closely to capture the essence of what Cranleigh is. The aim was to translate it into a community which combines the best of British education with a strong flavour of Abu Dhabi, Emirati culture and the cosmopolitan nature of the city.

Today the school is thriving. With more than 1300 pupils, a top rating from the Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), and the title of Tes Independent School Awards 2019.

Cranleigh UK opened its doors in 1865 with the purpose of providing the local Surrey community with a first class, all-round education. The UK Prep School celebrated its centenary in 2013 and the Senior School celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015.

I’ll be brief: while there were many ups and downs, my children received a world class education, one that they will both remember for the rest of their lives and will derive benefits from for many years to come. We wish them well and know that they’ll continue to keep Cranleigh Abu Dhabi the best private school in Abu Dhabi, if not the entire UAE.

They teach with love. They boost confidence. Simply, they embed beautiful values and skills that can not be taught in books.
