Principal's message

Welcome to Newton British Academy – Al Dafna, situated in the heart of downtown Westbay. NBA Al Dafna is a small, family friendly school where every child is known and affirmed. Like our sister schools in the Newton Group, we are focused on striving for excellence in all we do and celebrating together when we achieve success.

It has been said, that “when we are what we ought to be, we will set the world ablaze”. At NBA Al Dafna, we work in a special partnership of parents, pupils and teachers so that every child can flourish and set their own world “ablaze” with enthusiasm and the delight of learning. We set high expectations for our teachers and for our pupils and with the active support of committed parents, we all achieve success together.

Following the National Curriculum of England and Wales, we take children on an educational journey in which they are able to investigate the world around them, explore the meaning of words and numbers and become well rounded individuals who value learning and respect cultural and moral norms.

This young but vibrant school is a happy place committed to the development and flourishing of very child. In short, NBA Al Dafna is a small school with a big heart and we invite you to join us, as we walk together with your children through their primary education.

We are delighted to have you as part of our community. If you are not yet part of the Dafna family, you are most welcome to visit us so that you can experience first-hand what it is we offer every child.
