Site Visit and Recruitment Update

Brendan Law, Headmaster Cranleigh Abu Dhabi, Michael Wilson, Headmaster Cranleigh Prep School UK, Mr Anuj Kumar Garg, Managing Director Tafseer and Mr Peter Abraam, Executive Director Strategic Planning Royal Group met on 8 December 2013 to see the development on site at our Cranleigh Abu Dhabi Campus.  Mr Wilson said ‘I am so encouraged to see how much work has been done since I last visited only two and half weeks ago.  The project is really taking shape and I look forward to visiting again next month’. 

Mr Law and Mr Wilson are in the process of completing the final interviews for the Senior Management Team of Cranleigh Abu Dhabi this week.  Mr Law commented that ‘the response to the teaching positions at Cranleigh has been overwhelming with over 1600 applicants applying.’ Following a week of interviews in the UK last week and now a week of interviews here in Abu Dhabi both Heads are thrilled at the quality of academic leaders and Heads that have applied.  ‘Recruiting the best teachers is one of the single most important educational determinants for all at Cranleigh’ said Mr Law ‘and with what we have seen these past 2 weeks, we are well on course to achieve everything I had hoped for.’ ‘We hope to appoint four leadership posts in the coming week – there are going to be some very difficult decisions for us in the next few days’.
