– Copies of relevant medical reports, learning support reports and/or educational psychologist’s assessments, if applicable
All children will be assessed prior to entry, ideally at Kent College Dubai. While not required, we encourage all children applying for the Junior and Senior School to attend a taster morning at Kent College, spending the morning shadowing a pupil, prior to sitting the assessment in the afternoon.
Assessments will be arranged by Admissions after the application, registration documents and registration fee have been submitted.
– Children joining the Foundation Stage will be assessed in an informal, play-based classroom setting for school readiness. Children must be toilet trained by the time of starting school. Foundation Stage assessments take place in small groups during January-March of the year of entry.
– Children joining the Junior School (Years 1-2) will meet with a Deputy Head or Head of Junior School for an age appropriate reading, writing and maths skills assessment. If possible, we invite children to spend some time in a classroom.
Age Placement Guidelines
Kent College Dubai aims to be the Best British School in Dubai. We follow the British National Curriculum, and as such we follow a 13 year school system that starts in FS1 in the year that students are 3 turning 4 years old, and finishes in Year 13 where students are 17 turning 18 years old.
The year group into which students are allocated depends on whether their birth date falls before 31 August, or after the 31st August of each year. Please note that these age bands are guidelines, and students will be placed in the appropriate year group only after an initial assessment at our school and in keeping with the KHDA guidelines.
