Fee Schedule

Dear Parents,

At the two fee increase parent meetings at both DESS and DESC last academic year, we assured those present that we would very much like, in favourable circumstances, to not have to apply for increases in the future. We are very mindful of how the current economic climate is impacting upon families. I am, therefore, on behalf of The Board of Governors, the Headteachers and myself, pleased to announce that DESS and DESC will not be applying for a fee increase for the academic year 2016- 2017. Consideration of fee increases by the KHDA does not happen until March/April time, but I can assure you we will not be submitting any such request to raise our fees. Passing on the information this early in the year I hope enables you to have peace of mind when juggling future household budgets.

Kind Regards,

Andrew W Gibbs
Principal
