My name is Kevin Vertue and I am the Head of Secondary at ABQ Azzan Bin Qais International School. I work closely with Ms Rachel Long and Ms Sheeja Satish, the deputies in the Secondary section. Ms Rachel Long is in charge of Pastoral Care and together with her team ensures that students are safe and emotionally supported during their time with us. Ms Sheeja Satish is responsible for our Academic Programme and leads an experienced team of Department Heads to ensure that our academics are of the highest standard.
The backbone of any school is their staff, and at ABQ Azzan our staff are well-qualified and highly enthusiastic and live our motto, ‘We Care’ on a daily basis. This creates a safe and inspiring environment for our students and gives them the platform to reach their full potential. Our Academic programme is unique as we offer both the General Education Diploma (GED) and Cambridge curriculum as an option to our students. This gives them the opportunity to choose a curriculum that suits their future objectives.
Students in Secondary school are in a crucial phase of their schooling career, and holistic development during this period is of the utmost importance. For this reason, we offer a variety of sports and clubs for students to take part in. Some of these sports/clubs include basketball, swimming, soccer, tennis, robotics and photography. Being part of the ABQ family is an enriching experience where students grow into well-rounded individuals that are equipped for life after school.
