Brighton College Dubai is an academically selective co-educational school which offers the British Curriculum to pupils from FS1 to Year 9 (3 – 13 years of age) for the academic year 2018/19. The College will organically grow each year to reach Year 13.

A child’s point of entry into the College is based on their date of birth. Year group entry ages can be found in the 'Entry Ages'. We would kindly ask that you refer to this document before completing the Online Application Form. The Admissions team will contact you in relation to the submission of documentation once you have completed the online registration form.

Please note that we are unable to process incomplete applications.

The College welcomes applications from academically able boys and girls of all backgrounds and nationalities. However, it is only our age appropriate pupil selection assessments which enable us to establish each prospective pupil’s academic potential. Pupil selection assessments are by invitation only, once the application stage has been fully completed. The assessments usually take place at the College Admissions Office; however, if your child’s current school is overseas, the assessments may be completed there.

If you require any assistance, or would like to make an initial enquiry, please contact our Admissions Manager, Mrs Dawn Rennie on +971 54 792 9253 (admissionsdubai@brightoncollege.ae).

All prospective parents are required to complete our online Application Form, which can be accessed here.

Once your application has been received, a member of the Admissions team will contact you to request the essential supporting documents required to process your son or daughter’s application. Please note, your application will become ‘active’ once all of the essential supporting documents are received.

Your child will then be invited to attend an introduction meeting/entry assessment at the College. Should this be successful, a Formal Offer Letter and Acceptance Form will be emailed to you.

To summarise:

  1. Initial enquiry.
  2. Completion of the online application form.
  3. Submission of the required documents.
  4. Attendance at the College Admissions Office for a family meeting (and assessments for entry).
  5. Should this be successful, an offer letter and acceptance form will be sent via email.
