  • Pay by credit card for no extra charge, either termly or annually
  • Pay by cash or debit card on a termly or annual basis
  • Existing parents have the option of paying fees through the online parent portal
  • For ease of payments, you can also do a bank transfer

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.
