Brighton College Abu Dhabi names headmaster
Abu Dhabi, September 14, 2010
Bloom Properties, the Abu Dhabi-based developer of property and lifestyle solutions and the Brighton College Abu Dhabi (BCAD), have appointed Brendan Law as founding headmaster of the Abu Dhabi campus of the leading UK school.
Brighton College and Bloom Properties had signed a joint venture in 2009 to establish a series of schools around the world, using the Brighton College brand.
Scheduled to open in September 2011 in the heart of Abu Dhabi island at Bloom Gardens community, a development of exclusive new villas, the new school will aim to become the leading institution for private education in the Middle East. It will cater to children aged 3-18 years, though admissions in the first year will be for children aged 3-14.
“We are delighted that Brendan Law will be joining our school. We were looking for someone who had experience of both senior and junior schools with a proven track record in school leadership. Law ticks every box. He spent much of his career in a senior management role at Bedford School – which topped the International Baccalaureate league table in the UK this year,” stated Lord Skidelsky, chairman of Governors of Brighton College and an eminent economist.
