NES Profile About New English School

Founded in 1986 and located in the West Amman suburb of Khalda, the New English School is a private coeducational institute that caters to nursery (Pre1) and FS1 (Pre2) students and upwards.

Out of our firm belief that students need to discover their abilities in a wider world, NES started offering an English Only Stream ten years ago beginning from Early Years as an alternative to the traditional bilingual education. This option has proved to be very attractive to many parents – particularly among the foreign community. As such, NES today boasts a student body of 39 nationalities. This kaleidoscope of colours and cultures can only add to the richness of the student's life on campus.

The School’s pre-IGCSE programme is based on the National Curriculum for England and Wales and provides the foundation for AS and A-Level studies. Moreover, the Cambridge International Primary Programme has been fully endorsed since the academic year 2010/2011.

Since 1991, NES has been a recognized Teaching Institution and Examinations Centre accredited by both the Edexcel (London) and Cambridge International Examination Authorities. Our Examinations Officer liaises closely with the British Council in Amman with regards to regulations and guidelines to effectively and proficiently administer external exams on NES campus.

NES also offers the American High School Diploma as part of the American Program, the program is accredited by the US-based accreditation agency, Accreditation International.

NES memberships in international bodies and affiliations with impressive institutions are crucial in raisinig and maintaining  the high quality of our students' education and essential to increasing their acceptance rate at prestigious universities where they can pursue their higher education.

Education could be an industry, a business or a service. We view it as a commitment and a calling.
