It consisted of a small early years Foundation Stage unit with one Nursery class and one Reception class. Mesaieed Nursery School ran for five years until Mesaieed International School opened the first of three campuses in October 2008 - the Foundation Campus. Mesaieed Nursery School was amalgamated into Mesaieed International School. Indeed, there are pupils now in Secondary that started in Mesaieed Nursery School. With the opening of the Foundation Campus of Mesaieed International School pupils were admitted from Nursery to Year 6. Secondary pupils from Year 7 to Year 10 were accommodated in the old Mesaieed Nursery School building. This arrangement continued until the opening of the second campus – the Primary Campus – in January 2010. Pupils in Year 1 to Year 6 moved onto their new campus, and the Secondary pupils moved in upstairs on the Primary Campus, allowing the school to expand its pupil body up to Year 12. The third and final campus – the Secondary Campus – was opened in January 2011 with the provision of Sixth Form education and now a full A level programme has been developed. Specialist ICT, Design & Technology and fully operating Science labs are in place. Both Primary and Secondary campuses have a 200m synthetic athletics track, an astroturf multi-purpose pitch, a full size gymnasium, a 25m Swimming pool, a learner pool and full playground provision.
