Life at Kings’ Nad Al Sheba just got better. We now offer families support with subsidised transport available to students of all age groups.

Kings’ School Nad Al Sheba is a thriving, vibrant community in which students and families alike feel safe, valued and happy. We value our loyal and supportive families at Kings’ School Nad Al Sheba. As a thank you, we would like to offer our parents logistical and financial support in the form of subsidised transport. This programme is open to students of all age groups.

What is Subsidised Transport Scheme?

Transportation at subsidised rates will now be available to all students at Kings' School Nad Al Sheba from the beginning of Term 3 in April 2017. The School has assigned School Transport Services (STS) as its provider. All services will be provided with a qualified and certified driver and bus attendant as per the RTA regulation governing school transportation. Foundation Stage children taking up this service will be provided with a complimentary and compulsory child booster seat.

Door to Door Service

The transportation service will operate via door to door basis. Routes are decided by Kings’ and STS based on where our families live (minimum operating capacity is 8 students per route). The routes and number of buses operating on a particular route may be changed from time to time as new students access the service.

Application and Registration Process

All applications and payment must be made directly to Kings’ School Nad Al Sheba. Payments and registration can be completed in person at the School.

The fee structure for the use of the bus services are determined by STS. Kings’ will subsidise the transport service up to and including academic year 2018-19. After this period the normal rates, as defined by STS, will apply.
