Before a place can be offered the applicant will be asked to visit the school to be assessed. These assessments vary according to the age of the child. This will involve spending some time at the school and/or in the class he or she will be placed in and may give your child the opportunity to have a taste of school life at Kings' School Dubai.

Successful applicants will be notified by phone that a place has been offered and this will be followed up via a letter. The offer is valid for 10 days from receipt. In all cases the parent or guardian will be notified of the outcome of the assessment by telephone.
