    Peter Pan

    We are very excited to announce a film screening of the National Theatre's acclaimed West End production of 'Peter Pan' in our College Theatre. This recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale was captured live at the National Theatre and a trailer for the play can be found here.

    When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await and a riot of music and make-believe ensues. This wondrously inventive production is being screened at 8:30am on Thursday 8th March. The production is only open to pupils in Years 3 to 13 due to the length of the performance. 
    If you would like your son/daughter to attend, please follow the link here to reserve your tickets, after which you can pay for the 50aed ticket at the Finance office. Please note that parents are unfortunately not able to attend this screening. The deadline for payment at the Finance office is 4pm on Thursday 1st March; please be aware that your reservation will have to be cancelled if payment is not made by that time.

    Emirates ID cards

    The Department of Education and Knowledge requires that all pupils enrolled in the school have valid EID cards on file.

Parents that do not respond to communications and reminders about expired EID cards will be reported to the Department of Education and Knowledge.
