Kent College Dubai is a top British International School in Dubai offering a through-school education for pupils aged 45 days all the way through to A Levels graduation in Senior School. Our close ties with our sister school Kent College Canterbury in England ensures that we draw on over 135 years of heritage, legacy and tradition.

A warm community school – aiming to be the best British School in Dubai

Kent College Dubai opened in 2016 and has a reputation as a warm, friendly, community school with an excellent balance between academic achievement and pastoral care. This British International School is situated just off Al Ain Road adjacent to Meydan South, with easy access to surrounding areas of Meydan Precinct, Meydan Heights, The Villa, Al Barari, Liwan, Nad Al Sheba, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Mirdif and Arabian Ranches. Our world class facilities have resulted in KCD being called a top British international school with a ‘wow factor’, and a ‘ground-breaking school’. Most important, according to our present pupils, it is a place where ‘the staff bring out the best in you”. You are warmly invited to come and see for yourself. With students from over 91 nationalities, we aim to be the best British school in Dubai, bringing you premium private international schooling.

Kent College is committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We therefore expect all employees to share this same commitment.

Deputy Principal – Head of Seniors

Arriving at Kent College Dubai at the beginning of this academic year, I was instantly impressed with the warm welcome and caring nature of the school.

We have an outstanding community; parents, pupils and colleagues who are passionate about, and committed to, aiming for the highest academic and pastoral standards.

It is an honour and pleasure to be leading the Senior School in this next phase of our development, as we set about installing such high standards as the norm, creating a learning culture that promotes curiosity, collaboration and kindness in a rich and vibrant environment.

Great relationships and morals are the underpinning elements of a great school, and with our values; integrity, tolerance and respect at the heart of everything we do, I look forward to seeing our pupils embrace the challenges on offer with enthusiasm and passion.

As a former international athlete, who has been involved in education for over 20 years, I very much believe that excellence is a state of mind, that when instilled, encourages everyone to settle for nothing less than their very best.
