As we are a British Embassy sponsored school, priority is given in the application procedures to UK passport holders. Priority is also given to families of our sponsoring companies and children with siblings already in the school.

All children from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 2 are required to attend an, age appropriate, Assessment here at DESS. For children in Years 3 to 6 external assessments can often be arranged if necessary.
