by Lis ONealMay 21, 2017

The KHDA has announced a list of 10 new schools expected to open for the 2017-18 academic year – meaning more choice for parents. The majority of the schools will offer UK curriculum (in some cases with the IB Diploma programme at Sixth Form), although there will also be a new IB curriculum through-school, 2 new Indian curriculum schools, one French, one Canadian and one American. DEWA will be opening a Sixth Form Academy offering UK curriculum/BTEC qualifications.

Our own reviews are in preparation and will follow shortly. Details of all the schools can be found in our table below  – click on the name for further details.
