Payment Options

Payment of fees is required in three termly instalments. However, The Arcadia Preparatory School is also able to offer parents the option to pay school fees in ten equal monthly instalments (September to June), if this is preferable.

For the monthly payment option, the school requires post-dated cheques to be provided (further information is available from the finance office).

New Admissions

A non-refundable, non-transferable Application Fee of AED 500 is required.

A non-refundable, non-transferable Registration Payment of AED 5,000 is required to secure a place (deductible from the first term’s fees).

Existing Pupils

AED 2,500 of the school’s tuition fees are charged as a re-registration deposit to confirm the return of existing pupils in the new academic year. This deposit will be deducted from the total tuition fees for the academic year in which the admission is being sought.


In the cases of both existing and new pupils, deposits and fees will not be refunded if students choose not to return to school for the next academic year or choose not to take the offered places.
