Admissions

Star International School welcomes children of all nationalities from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 9. Admission to our school is dependent upon the availability of places as well as the outcome of an entrance assessment.
From September 2014 we will be accepting children up to Year 10 with the opening of Key Stage 4. The school will open all subsequent Secondary year groups over the next three years, enabling us to provide for all ages from 3-18.
We recommend that you complete a tour of the school and meet our Senior Leadership Team prior to submitting an application. The tour will provide you with the opportunity to view our facilities, gain an understanding of the school values and ethos, and ask any questions you may have regarding the curriculum and school life in general. The Registrar will also be available to answer your admissions queries.
School tours take place every Tuesday at 9am. To book a place on a tour please contact reception on +971 4 3483314 or email receptionist2@starschoolummsheif.com.
For more detailed information regarding our admissions policy and our admissions process, please download the relevant documents for either Foundation Stage, Primary or Secondary years from the bottom of this page.

Update regarding Foundation Stage Provision May 2014

Dear Parents,

You may be aware of recent announcements from the KHDA regarding the minimum ages for children in Foundation Stage and the provision of education for three year olds.

Firstly, the KHDA has stipulated that to be in Foundation 2 children must be four years old by 31st December of the same academic year. This does not affect our current cohort of children as we try to adhere to the cut-off dates for the UK which already require the children to be four years old by 31st August before they start school. This is important if families wish to transfer internationally or back to the UK into a school following the British Curriculum for continuity of the child's education.

The KHDA has also been looking at school provision for education for 3 year olds and I am delighted to inform you that we have been approved to continue to provide for this age group (our Foundation 1). This decision has been based on our performance in the DSIB inspections and their confidence in the quality of our provision.

If you are still unsure or have any further questions in regards to this matter please ask to speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team within school.

Kind regards

Mr Dave Principal
