Senior Leadership Team
Having been part of KCD from day one, we have seen this amazing school grow, flourish and more recently shine in the Performing Arts, Sport and Academic achievements.
KCD is brimming with a staff of top-notch teachers who all band together with a united goal. Giving all the students the support and spotlight to shine in their particular and unique strengths.
KCD made the transition from another country and the schooling system as smooth as possible.
Our children have been nurtured and motivated by KCD staff into students who love going to school and are proud to be KCD pupils.
“When we moved our children from their school where they were very settled and happy and moved them halfway across the world to Dubai, we were anxious about how well they would settle. We didn’t have anything to worry about, KCD is the most wonderful school, the minute you walk through the doors you feel kindness. The staff at the school have nurtured, cared and encouraged them both from little wriggly caterpillars to beautiful confident butterflies and we couldn’t be happier with the progress they’ve made!”
Thank you all for taking care of my kids for 5 days a week for 6 hours a day (on average) for 4 years and doing a great job! Our family had the great pleasure being part of Kent College Dubai family. Keep up the good work you do! We will miss you!
KCD Dubai is still a relatively new school. We were one of the pioneers in this school and we can definitely see the progress. The efforts from both teachers and staff were remarkable and they brought it to a different level.
My daughter loves KCD as the classes are small numbers and teachers are caring and nurturing. We love the parent’s community too as we had numerous unforgettable events. We hope to grow with KCD!!
“Having moved from the UK, the most important decision for us, was to find the right school for our boys, as there is endless choice locally. This will be our third year at Kent and we have absolutely no regrets, Kent is unique for it’s caring and close community environment. You are not made to feel like a statistic or number, the teachers and support staff across all levels always say hello and get to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses. Class numbers are kept at an appropriate size and the wider community is welcoming. Teachers, including senior staff, are always available and approachable for assistance and support. Kent is a very inclusive school with an exceptionally high standard of facilities, teaching and I personally feel is always trying to get the best out of your individual child.”
KCD offers a very welcoming and supportive environment and a strong community feel is evident when entering the school. A challenging curriculum is taught in a nurturing and fun environment and our two children that have just completed Year 2 and Year 5 are thriving academically, made wonderful friends and absolutely adore their teachers. Their high standards in teaching and learning, are evidence of the commitment of all their dedicated staff in achieving the best and highest standards. The SLT team are extremely supportive, approachable and always go above and beyond to support parents and are always seen encouraging and praising their students work and their efforts. KCD also has an amazing SEN department and their commitment to inclusion is what makes them a distinctive, progressive and a unique school. Thank you KCD for being a school that my children enjoy coming to everyday and creating a fun environment for them to thrive in.
‘Great school, fantastic teachers and staff. KCD was the right choice for us.‘
Having two children in Kent College Dubai, one in the Junior end and one in the Senior end, I have experienced not only the outstanding quality of teaching throughout the entire school, but the wonderful care and support that is offered when needed. KCD is truly an amazing school that has gone above and beyond in recent times through homeschooling. I couldn’t be happier seeing my children thrive.
From the very first time our family has visited KCD to have a look around, we have felt a strong connection to the school, its excellent staff and the welcoming community. Our native German-speaking kids have gone through an amazing learning process and have always had fantastic support from their teachers. Over the last few years, the school has played a big part in our lives and we could not have asked for a more secure, positive and loving place for our children’s academic education. We love being part of the KCD family!
From the moment our journey with Kent College Dubai began, we have felt welcomed, well informed and included in the educational journey of our children. Beyond the impressive buildings and facilities stands a dedicated management team and professional educators who continuously strive to deliver an outstanding educational experience. Their professional yet personable approach to both our children and ourselves has exceeded our expectations and confirmed that we made the right decision in choosing Kent College.
“Kent College Dubai is a fantastic school that radiates a warm, friendly, family atmosphere. The facilities are state of the art but it’s the teachers, administrative team and staff at KCD that make this school very special. They are a group of individuals who each possess enthusiasm, creativity and honesty and collectively foster individual growth and encouragement for each student and their learning style. Programs offered in the senior school are all extremely high calibre and The Performing Arts Department at KCD is second to none!!! Any student enthusiastic about performing arts should not miss out! We love KCD!”
Kent College has been a huge support this year with all the uncertainties. Year 2, in particular, have pulled out all the stops to offer support to children as well as parents! They were fun, full of energy, and really gave the children their all! Could not have wished for a better team for my son this year. Thank you all so much!
Kent College Dubai has been part of our community since 2016.
The warm and friendly environment makes KCD a lovely community school that we feel proud to be part of since its foundation.
On top of the academic excellence, the pupils have lots of positive experiences in many areas which develop a wide scope of social and individual skills.
The deep parent’s commitment together with a passionate staff brings to the pupils a sense of comfort and happiness that makes KDC a true family school.
Being part of Kent College School is a blessing!
Since joining KCD three years ago, our daughter has blossomed and thrived. Each and every staff member goes above and beyond to create a wonderfully supportive and inclusive learning environment. KCD is not just a school for our daughter it is a family for all of us.
Our family has had the privilege of being part of the KCD community for 4 years and have watched it grow from strength to strength.
The incredibly enthusiastic staff, constantly support, challenge, and encourage our children not only academically, but in all areas of school life. All in a happy, nurturing, family-like environment. Our boys are treated as individuals and every success, no matter big or small, is celebrated. Walking around Kent, it’s fantastic facilities and staff, provide the perfect foundation for our boys to grow in any area they wish to explore. The wonderful Drama, Music, Art, EIT, and Sports Departments all showcase the children’s incredible talents, and it’s a pleasure to attend any of the wonderful KCD community events. To see what this heartfelt school has achieved in such a short time only leaves me more positive in its future and my son’s all-round development during their school careers here.
My daughter joined FS1 as soon as she turned three, and it has been magical to see her flourish under the care, creativity and encouragement of the warm, welcoming and highly professional FS team.
She has just finished FS2, can read and write with confidence and ease, and has made excellent progress in numeracy. However, for us as parents, what Kent College has given to our daughter goes way beyond the curriculum requirements and the exceptional quality of the resources. Our daughter is happy and secure, has a wonderful group of friends, has had her imagination sparked and her interests encouraged, and has had the most wonderful time learning, playing, discovering and exploring. She skips into her class in the morning with a smile, and leaves at the end of the school day full of stories, adventures and brimming with fun and vibrant news to tell us.
She is super excited about joining Year 1 in September, and we are looking forward to all the new learning and adventures that she will have in the Junior School. We are incredibly happy as KCD parents, and we know that she will be in safe and wonderful hands, with many more opportunities ahead.
From the first day Kent College Dubai opened it’s doors in 2016, we were greeted by the friendly staff who welcomed us and reassured us that our children were in good hands.
That feeling of being cared for and being presented with new opportunities has continued as the school has grown.
The teachers are incredible and take the time to understand each child, motivate them, inspire them and support them. Both of my children love attending KCD and thanks to the support of the teachers, they’ve excelled in all aspects of schooling. They’ve been part of various sporting teams, taken part in the amazing school productions and have had the opportunity to learn new musical instruments.
We are extremely pleased with the school and look forward to a bright future for our children.
“I love the warm, friendly environment that has been shown to us over the application period. Kent College has gone over and beyond to help my daughter feel welcome into her 6th Form”.
“Feeling positive! September 2018.”
” We found the teachers very welcoming and a positive ‘open door’ policy permeates the school. Moving from UK mid-term from a very good school was always a worry but reality put our minds to rest. Our children were welcomed, included and happy from day one. The teachers immediately assessed their learning to date, and have quickly grasped the capabilities, and development/extension needs of both our children.The school has a calm learning environment.”
“Thank you Kent College Dubai for a great start!. ”
