In May 2015 an agreement was signed between Kent College Canterbury, Mir Hashem Khoory LLC (MHK) and Kent College LLC FZ (a joint venture company between MHK and Meydan Education) to build and operate Kent College Dubai. The guiding principle was to establish a school in Dubai that would offer the same curriculum, and ethos and values as Kent College Canterbury (KCC) and to provide a high quality British education within the cultural context of the UAE.
KCC is one of nine schools that belong to the Methodist Independent Schools Trust (MIST), which has a further 12 schools within its group - Kent College Dubai is the first and currently the only international school associated with MIST. KCC, in common with the other MIST schools, aims to extend the Methodist ethos and values and character to contribute to diversity in education. KCC was founded in 1885 as a school for boys, but has been co-educational since 1975. We share some key characteristics of the KCC heritage, such as the school crest and the names of our four competitive Houses - Augustine, Becket, Chaucer and Marlowe.
Governance of the school is through the Board of Management and its Advisory Board. The Board of Management oversees all matters of policy relating to the school, and day to day responsibility for the management of the school is delegated to the Principal and Bursar.
Former pupils include politicians, artists, musicians and sportsmen and women. One with a particular association with Dubai is Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airlines.
