The school will offer a full FS to Year 13 British curriculum to IGCSE and A’ Level on full all-through opening. Years will open in phases with Primary-only classes open initially in September 2020.

Recruitment for the Founding Principal of the new school is currently being advertised in the UK, this reflecting the Group’s current practice to recruit accomplished British principals to lead their schools.

The 57,000 square foot Cedar School is currently under construction:
