At Al Muna Academy we are all tireless in our pursuit of excellence.

Outstanding teaching and the use of first-class resources and facilities ensure we deliver a rich and varied curriculum in an inspiring, creative and memorable way. We aim to instil in all our pupils the core values of co-operation, consideration, courtesy and common sense, enabling them to grow into globally-minded individuals fully equipped to make a positive contribution to the future. Through developing strong relationships with our community we are committed to 'Achieving Excellence Together'.
Al Muna Academy opened in September 2009. Facilities at the school are excellent and include a large astro-turf field, outdoor swimming pool, a well stocked library, a large multi-purpose hall and gym, a number of computer suites and creative outdoor play areas.
Al Muna Academy is a very happy, purposeful place for children to learn. Children love coming to our school. We pride ourselves on the progress children make, the quality of relationships in the school and the ways that we ensure that children are safe and well cared for. Although we have almost 100 staff and over 700 pupils, visitors regularly comment on our family atmosphere and happy community feel.
When recruiting staff, we are lucky to be inundated with applications which means that we can acquire the very best practitioners in the world. All of our teaching staff are experienced, well qualified and motivated to provide the very best education we can.
