Al Mamoura Academy is a mixed primary and girls-only secondary school located near the Sea Palace off the East Ring Road, Abu Dhabi. The academy welcomed its first cohort of students in August 2016. The primary school endeavours to enable pupils to reach their full potential and develop them into motivated, ambitious and confident lifelong learners. Male students attending Al Mamoura’s primary school will receive automatic placement to Al Bateen Academy when they progress to secondary school.

Al Mamoura’s girls-only secondary school is an exciting first for Aldar Academies. In recent years, studies have highlighted the benefits of all-girls education that has resonated with educators from all backgrounds. The school's aim is to provide girls with an education based on best-in-class teaching methods, a range of extra-curricular activities and the promotion of leadership skills, in order to prepare them to be effective contributors and confident leaders of the future.


The curriculum at Al Mamoura begins with the English National Curriculum.

Early Years (Nursery to Foundation Stage 2)

In the first few years of school, the Early Years Foundation Stage, originating from the English National Curriculum, is taught.

Lower Primary (Years 1 and 2) and Upper Primary (Years 3 and 4)

During these stages, the English National Curriculum is taught alongside UAE Ministry of Education subjects, including Arabic and Social Studies.

Middle School (Years 5 to 8)

Following Upper Primary, Middle School begins. Here, students are prepared for their final years of schooling.

Senior School (Years 9 to 13)

Going into Senior School, students can continue with the British system, culminating in the Cambridge IGCSE and A-Levels, or they can begin working towards the American High School Diploma.


For the 2022/2023 academic year, Al Mamoura Academy’s yearly fees range from AED 48,800 (Nursery) to AED 72,430 (Years 12 to 13), and are payable per term.
