- help monitor the school’s standards and performance; and
- support the school and the Principal and seek to provide wise counsel.
Members of the Board of Governors are a group of experienced and skilled individuals from diverse backgrounds, who add a great deal to improve the school’s performance. Members are mindful of the role and responsibilities of the Principal, and understand and appreciate the relationship Kent College Dubai has with its sister school, Kent College Canterbury.
The KCD Board of Governors assist with monitoring the activity and performance of the school by supporting the school’s senior leaders to be fully accountable for the school’s outcomes. Working in partnership with the school, the Board of Governors actively collaborates, engages and challenges the school through constructive dialogue at all times.

The Board of Governors are not involved in financial matters or operational matters. A Finance Committee and an Executive Committee have been established for these functionalities.
