The "I am an NES student" code is central to everything we do here at the New English School. We believe that instilling these key values in our students guides and enables them to become well-rounded individuals, with the skills to succeed as a respected member of the community.
We encourage all members of our school community to measure themselves against these standards, with our staff leading by example.
After a three-year hiatus, NES students were delighted & proud to return to the Harvard Model Congress in Dubai as true global citizens. NES students arrived well-prepared and eager to collaborate with their fellow delegates. New friends and networks were fostered leaving a lasting legacy for next year’s cohort. Well done and congratulations to all students.
We’re thrilled to announce that NES students have been awarded 49 Cambridge outstanding learner awards. These awards recognise truly exceptional performances in IGCSE, AS and A-Level examinations and place the recipients among the top students both in the region and globally.
We’d like to congratulate all our students and staff for their hard work and great success.
The first visiting NES alum for this year was Kevin Mathew. Kevin left NES in 2018, after a prestigious career here at the New English School, including acting as Head Boy in his final year of studies. After studying Industrial Engineering at Georgia Tech University, he went on to work at Microsoft on their groundbreaking Copilot AI program.
In his talk to students, Kevin spoke of the importance of making the most of every opportunity, including acting on the feedback of others. He finished his talk by highlighting the importance of emotional intelligence, particularly the positive impact of collaboration, listening, reflecting and being grateful.
Our Year 3 students have been studying the different structures of flowers, and engaging in practical activities such as the dissection of lilies. This allowed the students to get a detailed view of the internal and external components that make up a flower.
They then used their observation skills to create detailed scientific drawings of the different parts of a plant, labelling them with the correct scientific vocabulary.
We’re pleased to announce that two of our fantastic students have been successful in joining this year’s Young Ambassador program. Mia has been paired with the Deputy Ambassador of the Netherlands, whilst Lillian will be working alongside the Ambassador of Australia. This will give them unprecedented insight into the roles and responsibilities involved in international diplomacy. Congratulations girls!
