Executive Principal - Job Description & Person Specification (.pdf format)

As Head of School, you will be an inspirational leader with the drive and vision to work in close collaboration with the school Board, in leading Nada International School on its journey to become a centre of academic excellence and a place where students become successful lifelong learners.

Nada International School is an International Private, co-educational school situated in the Al- Ahsa City, the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. It serves the  expatriate population of their Group of Companies and the expatriate population of the surrounding Al- Ahsa City.  

Nada International School accommodates over 400 students aged 3-18. .It has been an amazing transformation from when the school first started it had twenty students, ten teachers and two administrators. At the start of 2021, the school now has a beautiful boys and girls campus, which serves the needs of around four hundred and thirty students. Children travel from all around the Hofuf area.

In 2015 – 16 we were accepted to deliver the Cambridge (Primary, Secondary, ICE and AICE) curriculum and associated examinations. We have a sizable number of children who have received awards from CIE for their excellent academic performance, when compared to thousands of students across the region.

Every year graduates from G12 leave the school to go to a number of highly regarded universities around the world. 

NIS has all the advantages of being supported by the Al- Othman Group, which aims to retain a family based ethos, high levels of student support and professional (but human) relationships that characterise the school environment. Since 2002, the Board of Trustees have made a longstanding commitment to facility enhancement and staffing. Resultantly, NIS are proud of the fact that it offers unrivalled safety for children within the highly secure Nada Farm Village Compound and have park-like grounds where children are encouraged to play and an ever improving excellent set of professionals at the school.
