Repton Al Barsha (formerly Foremarke School Dubai), part of the prestigious Repton Family of Schools in the UAE, has announced a reduction in tuition fees, starting from the 2021-2022 academic year. The initiative is part of the school’s ongoing efforts to continuously provide outstanding education at affordable prices and alleviate the financial burden faced by some families during the Covid-19 global pandemic.
Beginning at the start of the next academic year, parents of students from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 6 will benefit from school tuition fees up to 16% lower, while Senior School parents will benefit from financial support for the next three academic years: 15% off for existing parents and 10% off for new parents. The fee reduction is possible thanks to the group’s hard work and prudent operational and financial efficiencies implemented at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. It follows the AED 8 million Repton Family Support Fund (RFSF) introduced earlier this year, which provided financial support and benefits to some families who had suffered financial hardship as a direct result of the pandemic.
Zoe Woolley, Headmistress of Repton Al Barsha says, “To be able to offer our parents a reduction in tuition fees is something we are immensely proud of. We understand many have faced financial challenges over the past few months, and we hope that this initiative, combined with our RFSF, can be a form of much-needed support to parents and our school community. I would like to thank all members of the Repton Family of Schools for their hard work and dedication, since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, to ensure we can give back to the community and continue to achieve academic excellence.”
Repton Al Barsha has been delivering high quality education since 2013 and, in November 2019, announced its expansion into Senior School years, with Year 7 & Year 8 already successfully operating. Year 9 will commence in the 2021-22 academic year, followed by an organic year on year growth to provide the IGCSE curriculum up until Year 11 and A-levels for Year 12 and Year 13.
The Apple Distinguished School has achieved various outstanding feats during its tenure in the UAE, including the expansion of the state-of-the-art innovation wing at the Al Barsha campus. Guided by the vision of ‘Learning by Connecting’, the school has integrated its curricula with digital literacy across the board, diligently and innovatively providing a robust educational experience that combines academic excellence with extraordinary success in sports, performing arts and well-being. Repton Al Barsha has maintained excellent standards of teaching and learning, especially since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, enabling students to continue their academic and extra curricular learning from home unhindered through Repton Al Barsha’s innovative Remote Learning Plan.
