Places for Foundation Stage at DIS are offered in EY1 - EY2 and confirmed following a play-based assessment.

Admissions to Y1 - Y12 are confirmed following a review of the child’s most recent school report and may include further additional assessments and/or an interview, if additional information is required.

Students who are applying for IB Diploma Programme are required to have 6 iGCSE Grades A*- C.  IBDP students are required to have at least a B in the 3 Higher Level (HL) Subjects selected with a recommendation that an A is preferred for HL Maths. A Grade C or above is required for Standard Level (SL) Subjects.  Please note,  Dual Award Science will be seen as one subject area and Dual English will be seen as one subject area.

Students who are applying for IB Career-related Programme are required to have a minimum of 2 iGCSE Grades A* - C  (one in English is preferable).

IB entry requirements for the students with  previous results from other curriculums - MYP, Indian, American etc. will be considered alongside internal testing and CAT4 tests on entry.  All students will have an interview with the IB Coordinator and Careers & Universities Counsellor.

We do not normally accept students for entry to Year 11 or Year 13; both these year groups are already half way through IGCSE or IB Diploma courses respectively, and achieving compatibility with other school’s subject choices, specifications and modules usually makes it extremely difficult for students to fit into these years successfully.

Refunds under special circumstances will be in accordance with the KHDA’s School Fees Framework.
