Abu Dhabi


Cranleigh School, UK, approached Alligan when still at the planning stage of its collaborative venture with a government agency, TDIC, in Abu Dhabi to establish Cranleigh School Abu Dhabi.  Alligan was engaged by TDIC to provide furniture and equipment consultancy for the new school and went on to supply virtually all of its contents from classroom furniture, science labs, IT, sports equipment and books and other learning materials for ages from 5 to 18 year olds.  This was a demanding logistical effort to ensure that shipping from the UK coordinated exactly with a challenging construction programme.




Alligan provided support on the initial discussions with the financial sponsor of North London Collegiate School's international school located in Dubai.  NLCS Dubai is the second addition to the NLCS family of schools, following the successful establishment of their first overseas ‘branch’ in Jeju, South Korea.


Alligan also provided project management support for the establishment of NLCS Dubai.  Since its opening in September 2017, NLCS Dubai has brought a unique educational offering to families in the region, combining a rich heritage with academic excellence and inspirational subject teaching.
