Primary was introduced in 2019 and expansion is planned for all year groups over the next few years.

We aim to provide an outstanding international, holistic education in a creative, safe, caring and inclusive learning environment. Bateen World Academy offers an extensive curriculum with world class facilities including science labs, drama studio and auditorium, DT specialist workshops for resistant materials, textiles, graphics, electronics and food, PE areas including full size astroturf, indoor pool, dance studio,  Art rooms for ceramics, photography and an IB studio. Students have a wide range of subjects and learning activities to participate in both during lessons and after school.
