ISTA Festival – Building Skylines


Time flies in a busy school and it is already over 2 months since Cranleigh hosted the fantastic ISTA Festival. Here is what Mr Brooks had to say when we welcomed schools from the UAE, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Oman and India:

“Thank you for joining us here at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi, for what promises to be a fun and memorable ISTA Festival! ‘Building Skylines’ is the title of our Festival and it is no coincidence that the Cranleigh campus overlooks the ever-growing landscape of Abu Dhabi. I see it as both a metaphorical and literal inspiration and it highlights how the region continues to develop. At the same time, I believe that our ‘Out and About’ trip to Louvre Abu Dhabi is a reflection of the UAE; a museum that celebrates its own heritage, whilst also showcasing and welcoming nationalities from around the world.”
