English Education Management Company (EEMC) announces its first school in the Sultanate of Oman. A’soud Global School (AGS) Muscat will open in September 2016 admitting pupils from Pre-KG to Grade 6 and in the successive years will grow to an Upper Prep and Senior School preparing pupils for iGCSE’s and A-Levels.
Andrew Hurst, Principal – AGS Muscat, is enthusiastic about the opening and highlights that the school will nurture excellence while conserving culture and tradition in line with all Al Najah schools in the MENA region. He said, “AGS Muscat will offer its pupils a vibrant and challenging learning environment, with a distinctive British independent school style, that reflects the values and dynamic culture of The Sultanate of Oman. With a team of highly experienced British, International and Arabic teaching and support staff, the school will develop independent and enquiring minds, aiming to turn out young men and women with the capability to achieve their aspirations – both academically and morally. This will ultimately enable our pupils to respond to the rapidly changing world in which they will pursue further study and work”.
Located next to the Seeb Souq in a purpose-built campus, AGS Muscat will educate pupils aged 3-18 years within state-of-the-art facilities including spacious and stimulating classrooms, outdoor multi-games courts, swimming and splash pools, football pitch, indoor multi-purpose sports hall, library, ICT room, music room, art & drama room and laboratories.

Al Najah Education provides the academic know-how and operational services for both the institutions.
Shailesh Dash, Chairman – Al Najah Education, said “We are grateful to the Ministry of Education, Sultanate of Oman for this opportunity and look forward to their continued support in our future endeavors.
