Update - 2020 Dubai School Inspection Results, Complete!

Not all schools will receive a physical inspection by the KHDA's DSIB inspection teams this academic year. Our list includes the details of all those that have been inspected this year together with the results from last year, schools not yet due for inspection, and new schools opening in 2020-21, to create the most up to date list available. Results for schools are now being released, and are being updated in our table.

NB - As at 20th May, the KHDA has started to release non-Indian school inspection results for 2019-20.  Any change in rating will be highlighted in BOLD in our table below.  Please do read to the end of the chart to see changes.

Schools that have already notified WhichSchoolAdvisor.com of their inspection results include Safa British School, Dubai British School Jumeirah Park,  GEMS Wellington Academy Al Khail, Hartland International School - rating improved from Good to Very Good, and Star International School Al Twar - rating improved from Acceptable to Good. Al Salam Primary School and  Star International School, Mirdif retained their Good rating.

Under the normal circumstances, about this time, the KHDA would be publishing the full inspection reports for Dubai schools. But these are not normal times...

All Indian curriculum schools were inspected prior to school closures.  In addition, following the announcement of the KHDA's revised policy in September last year, all schools that were rated Very Good or Outstanding in 2018-19 will retain this rating for 2020.

It is not yet clear whether the KHDA will publish the results of the inspections of those schools that did take place between September and February.  Nor do we know if the new inspections for on-line teaching will be published prior to the summer vacation. 

However, given that many parents may be considering schools for their children in September or in April next year, be this for children already attending a Dubai school or those about to start their education in the emirate, we have compiled a list of the most recent inspection results, to help parents narrow their choices.

Fee information is based on the approved KHDA fees.  Many schools - particularly newer ones - had already discounted their fees before the closure of schools due to Covid-19.  You will find up to date information about reduced fees under the Fees and Availability tab on each Review page.

Some schools have also made further reductions specifically to support families during this difficult period.  Full details of these reductions may be found in our schools offering fee reductions list.

This table also includes schools that have not yet been inspected or whose inspection was due to take place in 2019-20 for which no report has been issued as yet, or where the inspection may not have taken place.  New schools that have announced their opening in September are also listed.

We suggest that you use this list to identify schools whose curriculum, location and fees may be a suitable option, check the review on WhichSchoolAdvisor.com and details of the inspection rating both within the review and in the KHDA report, which can be found under the Inspection Report tab.
