The Newlands School, based in Al Warqa, Dubai has announced its plan to foster academic excellence within the Emirati community through the launch of a scholarship programme for UAE National girls during its inaugural 2017/18 school year.

Five Emirati girls aged between 1-6 years’ old will benefit from the new scheme, with the UK curriculum-based Newlands School offering 100 per cent financial support on current tuition fees for successful candidates.

“Scholarships will be awarded on merit, irrespective of financial means,” explains Jane Whitby, Founding Principal at Newlands School.

“Scholarships signify excellent academic performance and outstanding potential that we are keen to identify and leverage. This programme is indicative of our commitment to raising achievement within the Emirati community and provide access to high-quality education that is fully supported by our teaching staff and the wider school. We look forward to receiving the applications and wish everyone applying good luck.”

In order to qualify for the scholarship, candidates must gain a place at the school through the regular assessment route via the Admissions Department. Applications for places must be completed by 31st August 2017.

Newlands School has set up a scholarship committee to decide which five pupils will qualify, and entrance exams for the scholarship will take place in early September. The application deadline for scholarships is on 30th September.

Offering an affordable solution to parents in its catchment area, with the smallest class sizes (maximum of 25 pupils) than other schools in the same fee range, Newlands School offers a British curriculum and a holistic international education that focuses on innovative teaching and learning about the real world. 

The board of governors of Newlands Schools are the owners of Beacon House, the world’s largest school group by student population. They have a proven track record of setting up and running successfully schools in south-east Asia and the Middle East.
