2. Which class is my child eligible to join?

DBGS places children in age appropriate classes. Please click here to access the DBGS age matrix.
Using the DBGS age matrix, please calculate your child’s year of entry at DBGS for the 2018/2019 school year. Children who have been placed out of age appropriate classes at previous schools will not automatically have that placement honoured.

3. What documentation do I need to apply?

Listed below are all the documents that must be submitted to complete your child's applicaton. Late applications will NOT be accepted.

3.1 Application Form: One application form per child is required and must be completed, signed and submitted by admissions deadline at 2.00pm on Thursday 22nd February 2018. Please click here to access the ISG application form.

3.2 Application Fee: Enclose the non­refundable application fee of SAR525  (SAR500 application fee + 5% VAT) per student with your application. This fee will be used to review your child’s application and to defray the cost of any further assessments and interviews that may be conducted. Please note that DBGS will only accept a cash payment.

3.3 Two latest school report cards/grade reports/transcripts:
The school report cards must be translated into English.
Please note that although DBGS can accept a child’s application without attested report cards, it is important to note that if the student is offered a seat at DBGS, attested report cards must be submitted to gain Ministry of Education approval and complete enrolment. Please see below for more information.

  • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Saudi Embassy in the country from which the report card/transcript was issued must attest the report card/transcript.

  • Medical information related to your child's learning

Without this complete set of information, the school cannot make the appropriate educational choices for your child. DBGS's goal is to provide a programme that is an optimal match between your child's individual educational needs and the support services available at the school. DBGS school programmes, in compliance with the administration of school policy, are not designed to meet the instructional needs of students with complex learning, language or emotional/behavioural difficulties.
