The School offers an academically ambitious education in keeping with the aspirational ethos of NLCS (UK), and the same impressive range of extra-curricular activities, to foster well-rounded individuals who are capable of becoming leaders. The School is a coeducational day school for pupils aged 3-18 years, situated within the prestigious Hartland development in Dubai. The School was built and is funded by our partners in the project, a leading Indian property development company, Sobha.

While ensuring academic excellence and intellectual challenge, NLCS Dubai is equally concerned with supporting the development of the whole person and aims to inspire confidence, individuality and self-esteem.

NLCS Dubai is an English-speaking school, and is authorised as an IB continuum school for the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma programmes.
