Ten new private schools are set to open in Dubai in the 2021-22 academic year.

They offer a choice of Australian, UK, US and IB curricula.

According to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), an additional 14,671 seats will be added to the emirate's education landscape with the latest openings.

The new schools are located in Tilal Al Ghaf, Al Warqa, Al Karama, Al Barsha, City Walk, Mirdif, Nad Al Sheba, Al Khawaneej and Rashidiya.

They include the first-ever Australian curriculum school in Dubai as well as the first Dubai campus of Britain’s prestigious 500-year-old Royal Grammar School Guildford.

"The continued demand for new schools reflects the resilience of Dubai’s private education sector and reflects the success of our strategy to attract high-quality schools that meet Dubai’s aspirations and needs," said Mohammed Darwish, CEO of Permits and Compliance at the KHDA.

A total of 25 new private schools have opened in Dubai over the last three years.

Between September 2020 and February 2021, Dubai witnessed a 2.6 per cent overall growth in school enrolment, according to the latest landscape report released in February by the KHDA.
