Why KCD?

Why Kent College Dubai?

A Top International British Curriculum, IB and BTEC School in Dubai

Our teachers

The vast majority of Kent College Dubai teachers are British teachers and all our teachers possess a UK teaching qualification or equivalent.

Our Leaders

KCD is proud to say that we are a leadership who listens. We continually seek, reflect on and respond to your feedback and suggestions as parents on what we are doing well and how we can improve. We are a leadership who are ever available to our parents.

Our Pupils

Kent College Dubai prides itself on being one of the Best British Curriculum Senior Schools in Dubai because we unlock the individual potential in each and every child. We provide performance guidance and pathways that are as unique as the pupils that attend this school. By the time pupils graduate from Kent, they are internationally-minded adults that see themselves as global citizens. They are confident in their opinions, have the courage to stand by their convictions, hold previous generations accountable for their actions, and are confident to be catalysts for change into the future. KCD students know that they hold the future in their hands, and they do not shy away from the weight of this responsibility, because they know that they are equipped with all that’s required for life in an ever-changing world; they are agile, curious, empathetic, open-minded, principled, tenacious and brave.

In the Senior School we have adopted the IB Learner Profile. The IB Learner Profile represents 10 attributes valued by IB World Schools. We believe these attributes, and others like them, can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national and global communities.

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-taking
  • Balanced

Small Class Sizes = Individual attention

Evidence of our continued commitment to personalised learning is our adult to student ratio and small class sizes. At KCD our students will receive the highest level of personalised instruction from educators who truly understand and care about them.

A British Curriculum School in Dubai with various Graduation Pathways

Dubai offers a plethora of educational curriculums, the choice of which is a deeply personal one which depends very much on each individual pupil, and what they hope to achieve in their lives once they finish Senior School. It’s a tough choice, and we are often asked by Parents: “How do I know which graduation pathway will be suitable for my child?” It’s a difficult call to make so early on in your child’s educational journey, and that is why at Kent College Dubai, we offer various graduation options for your child to choose from once they reach Senior School. We are a top international British Curriculum School (GCSE/iGCSE and A Levels), IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), and we offer BTEC in Performing Arts, Sports or Business.

Over 135 Years of History, Legacy and Tradition

Owing to our very close ties with our sister school – Kent College Canterbury in England – Kent College Dubai is a school that is steeped in over 135 years of heritage, legacy and tradition. We draw on tried, tested and trusted methods from Kent College Canterbury, and adapt them for our local context. We benefit from the close relationship with our sister school – their Principal sits on our Board of Governors, we have always shared special occasions with them by remoting-in via Zoom so that pupils and staff can feel a very real connection between the two schools, and we enjoy visits from their leaders from time to time.
