Academy Partnerships at Nadeen School

 Academy Partnerships at Nadeen School – by Mr Kyle 

Nadeen School is delighted to have partnered with some of the leading sports and performing arts academies in Bahrain. These academies provide children with additional opportunities to flourish and further develop their sporting prowess, teamwork, resilience, and many other important life skills. Academies are designed to provide children with regular, structured, progressive sessions, delivered by professionals in their field.

Last week, many of our partners held taster sessions for children to come along and try out the different academies for themselves and to see if they could envisage themselves as future footballers, dancers, gymnasts, or martial artists. It was great to see so many children come along and discover their passion for sport. 

We would like to thank 24N, Victoria Dance, Aces Taekwondo, and Aspire Gymnastics for offering the free taster sessions and we hope your children enjoyed trialling these out. Listed below is all of the information you need to get in contact with any of the academies directly, to either find out more about their programme, ask any questions you may have, or register with them.
