Kent College Dubai
Kent Nursery is partnered with Kent College Dubai, a growing international school in the heart of Meydan South’s community, easily accessible from its neighbouring areas of Nad Al Sheba, Meydan, Dubai Silicon Oasis, The Villa and Al Barari. KCD was established in 2016, with the aim of providing the same high-quality education to families in Dubai as that offered by its founding school Kent College in Canterbury, England. Kent College Canterbury brings with it a legacy of over 130 years, and our close link with this sister school has enabled us to grow into a warm, friendly and caring community school, catering for children from age 3 to 18.
The main programme of study is the UK Curriculum, and post-16 pupils have an array of pathways to graduate including A-Levels, BTEC in Performing Arts, Business and Sports, BTEC and A-Levels combined, and we are an International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme Candidate school. As an inclusive school, we pride ourselves on the bespoke personalised pathways that support individuals to reach success academically, physically and socially. Our Inclusion Team are always on hand to support in this process all the way from Nursery to Sixth Form.
Kent College Canterbury
Kent College Canterbury was founded in 1885 as an outstanding Independent, Co-Educational British School for girls and boys aged 0-18 located on the outskirts of the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury in England. Kent College Canterbury prides itself both on its 130 years of history and tradition, and in its forward-looking, innovative approach to education. Their guiding principle ‘do all the good you can do’ allows pupils to grow and develop into confident young adults, aware of their responsibilities and their place in the world. Kent College Canterbury is recognised as a world school, offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma alongside A level courses.
In May 2015 an agreement was signed between Kent College Canterbury, Mir Hashem Khoory LLC and Kent College LLC FZ to build and operate Kent College Dubai, a British School in Dubai. The guiding principle was to establish an outstanding British school in Dubai that would offer the same curriculum, ethos and values as Kent College Canterbury and the same quality of British education within the cultural context of the UAE.
