Al Yasmina School is a private, British curriculum school in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Al-Yasmina educates students from foundation stage 1 till year 13 in joint primary and secondary schools.
The school was opened in September 2008 by Darren Gale, ex-principal.
Al Yasmina follows the British curriculum. The school offers iGCSEs, GCSEs and A-Levels. Science, English and mathematics are compulsory subjects throughout the school. Students begin their secondary school years in Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9), following the National Curriculum of England and Wales, and then move into Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11). During KS4 they sit a range of UK national exams GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). If students achieve the required grades they can go on to an advanced level of study which is a prerequisite for university. This course is done in the last two years of school (which are non-compulsory) and are spent in Key Stage 5, which at Al Yasmina is known as Post-16.
