Nord Anglia to develop Abu Dhabi school

Schools group Nord Anglia Education is to develop a new international school in Abu Dhabi.

The group said it would invest around $11 million (£7.6 million) over four years in the project.

The 2,250-seat campus, close to the central business district, will have sports, science and arts facilities for students from the age three to 18, and is expected to open in September 2017.

Andrew Fitzmaurice, the chief executive of Nord Anglia, said: "We are delighted to announce that we have signed a land lease to establish our second school in Abu Dhabi. The demand for premium K-12 education in the emirate continues to grow strongly from both local families and expatriates alike.”

Nord Anglia, which owns around 42 schools worldwide, reported a 61% sales rise in the first quarter of 2016.
