Kent College Dubai is a joint venture between Kent College, MHK LLC and Kent College LLC FZ (a joint venture company between MHK and Meydan Education). The guiding principle is to provide a school in Dubai that offers the same curriculum, and ethos and values as Kent College Canterbury. The main focus being to offer the same quality of British education within the cultural context of the UAE. The school opened its doors on 28 August 2016 with 240 students, there are currently 810 students in the school.

The elements of the school crest reflect the school's heritage, including the white horse of Kent, associated with the county since Saxon times, and three choughs, which were the symbol of Thomas Becket, who was Archbishop of Canterbury in the 1100s, and was famously murdered in Canterbury cathedral. The Latin motto means 'Your light is my way'. Former pupils of the school include artists, musicians, sportsmen and women, and Sir Tim Clark. Four houses
exist (Augustine, Becket, Chaucer and Marlowe) and each child belongs to one of these throughout their time at school.

The school is non-selective and inclusive. 2018 GCSEs results saw a 96% pass rate of grades 9-4. Key strengths of the school are the progress and attainment of the students; the teaching, learning and assessment; relationships across the school and sense of community; personal development of the students and leadership across the school.

KCD is a thriving, caring community. Our students benefit from being educated by a talented, reflective, dedicated team of professionals. The school provides a warm, friendly and supportive environment where students learn together in an atmosphere that is conducive to high-quality learning.
