Summary

From a learning perspective, our curriculum and pedagogic style has to mould to the needs and abilities of each and every student, not the other way around; and this is something unique to Kings’. Small class sizes also support our commitment to delivering a personalised teaching programme for each student.

Our core values from achieving results the right way through to our British heritage, international perspective (as outlined in more detail in the previous question) are also unique to Kings’.

At Sixth Form level, we run the Duke of Edinburgh award and EPQ programme, which provide plenty of opportunities for self-development and an added advantage when the time comes to consider university applications.

Talking tangibles, our facilities are also second-to-none from hi-tech classroom and laboratory design and equipment through to our fantastic performing arts spaces, including a black box theatre, green screen facility, dance studio and huge music department including a sound recording studio.

Fine arts are well represented with five studio areas, a sculpture and ceramics workshop and an amazing photographic studio that many professionals would be envious of. Sport is also a key foundation for a well-rounded education experience and as well as world-class facilities we work with internationally-capped rugby and cricket players who come in and coach our own rising stars.

Admissions process

Step 1 – Applying online
Check to see which year group is correct for your child, based on their date of birth.

Check availability for your child’s year group with the registrar at your chosen school.
Familiarise yourself with the relevant school fees.

Agree to the terms of our Positive Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policy

Select the Online Application Form for your chosen campus. Once the form has been completed, you will receive an automated response confirming receipt of your application. Please check your emails (including the spam and junk folders) for details regarding your application.

Step 2 – Finalising the application
Please bring all the required documents to the Registrar at your chosen campus during Admission Office opening hours.

You will be required to pay a non-refundable fee of AED 1,000 at the same time. This can be made by cash or cheque at the Schools’ Accounts department.

Note: If you are overseas, you can scan the documents and email them to the Registrar for your chosen campus. The Registrar will be able to advise you how payment can be made.

Step 3 – Securing a Place
Once your application has been processed, if a place is available you will be contacted and your child will be invited into the school for an assessment. Assessments vary according to the age of the child. For more information on assessments visit here.

If no places are available at the time, you will be placed on a waiting list and notified once a place becomes available.

You will be notified of the outcome of the assessment shortly afterwards. Successful applicants will receive a formal offer letter valid for ten days from receipt.

To secure the offer of a place, you will need to pay a deposit of 25% of the relevant annual school fees (which will be deducted from the fees for your child’s first term). Payment is in person by cash or cheque. Overseas payments are by arrangement with the relevant Registrar as above.
