Delhi Public School Dubai and Sharjah are no longer associated with the Delhi Public School Society in India.

The well-known Indian education trust officially announced the end of the association.

In a public notice issued by the society, it announced that the two UAE based schools – DPS Sharjah and DPS Dubai, “are not continuing on the basis of any legal relationship with the DPS Society”.

“This public notice is for information for all persons who are inquiring about this matter (with regard to the status of DPS Sharjah and DPS Dubai). The Delhi Public School Society, India, carries no responsibility whatsoever for actions of Delhi Private School, Sharjah and Delhi Private School, Dubai,” the notice stated.

News of an attempt by DPS Society to re-negotiate the licence fee paid by Gulf-based schools emerged last month.

DPS Society currently lends its brand name to about 220 institutions worldwide. Eleven thousand students attend a school with its name in the UAE.

The society entered into the agreements with the Delhi Private School LLC, Sharjah on January 28, 2000, and on February 13, 2002 with DPS Dubai.

The collaboration agreement lapsed with the two schools on April 1, 2017

The society website has dropped the Sharjah and Dubai school names, however DPS Ajman continues to feature on its site.

WhichSchoolAdvisor.com has sought comment from Dinesh C. Kothari, pro-vice-chairman and managing director of DPS Sharjah and DPS Dubai. We are currently waiting for a response.
