Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any additional fees?

School uniforms can be purchased at an additional cost from Zaks Uniforms

If EAL or AEN is required, this may be subject to additional cost.

How does the process differ if my company is paying the tuition fees?

Our aim is to make the process as straightforward and simple as possible for you, the parents. In the event that your company will be paying school fees, our Admissions Team and Finance Team will be happy to provide you with information to make it a smooth process.

What is the assessment process before an offer is made?

Assessment sessions will be held throughout the academic year for Year 1 to Year 12. Play sessions for Nursery & Foundations Stage 2 are a mandatory step in the admissions process for all students currently in the UAE.

Students applying to the school may be required to sit an assessment to gauge their level of English, additional learning needs, or to help decide which year level will be most appropriate. 

How long should I expect the full admissions process to take?

From the moment a parent first makes contact with the school to the point when we offer their child a place at the school should take no more than two weeks. It really depends on how quickly parents wish to apply.
