Ask Louise | Entry to School in Dubai
My name is Mahesh and i am likely to be considered for the post in Dubai. I may join them in December 2014. As I understand schools starts in September, can we have admissions for schools in December? My children are studying British curriculum ( form 7) and another is in class 2 in Ghana international school, Ghana . We need British curriculum in Dubai. Can you please guide us on this?
There is no problem starting your child in a school in December however, where you will have more of an issue is finding a place as Year 7 is very popular. Please see our list of schools offering English National Curriculum on our Schools Directory. I would suggest you contact some of the newer schools that have opened Year 7 which would include GEMS Wellington Academy, Al Khail, Kings Dubai, Al Barsha, and Nord Anglia International School. These schools also have primary sections attached to them which will make like easier having your two children at the same school.
