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 line with the KHDA guidelines.
