ADMISSIONS

Availability

As one of the best value, high quality, British curriculum schools in Dubai, some of our year groups fill quickly due to a high demand for places. We therefore recommend that you apply early to avoid disappointment and to have the best chance of securing a place at our school. The admissions status for each year group is indicated below. If you are applying for a year group that is currently full, an application will still be accepted and your child will be placed on a waiting list until a space becomes available.

Please note:

* Applications for the 2023/24 Academic Year open in August 2022. 

* Applications for entry to Year 11 and Year 13 are dependent on our subjects and exam boards being in alignment with what your child is currently studying.

ADMISSIONS STATUS DEFINITIONS

Closed – Waiting lists are closed when a cap is reached and no further applications can be accepted. The only exception would be applications from The English College staff and siblings of existing students.

Open – Applications are being accepted and we anticipate making admission offers, however, we cannot guarantee place availability to all who apply. Applicants may be waitlisted after assessment, depending on availability. 

Waitlist Only – Applications are accepted onto the waiting list on the understanding that all year group places have been offered, and we do not have spaces available today. Students will be invited for assessment and places offered from the waiting list if they become available.
