Not re-enrolling for the next Academic Year:

Important points to note regarding re-enrolment:

  • The re-enrolment process applies to all parents wishing their child/children to return to GEMS FirstPoint School - The Villa for the new academic year. The process applies to all students, including company paid accounts. Parents who normally have their school fees covered directly by their employer will usually need to make this payment themselves, and then seek reimbursement from their employer.
  • The deposit is fully adjustable against the first term fees.
  • The deposit is non-refundable should your child not return to school in September. However, if a family is re-locating outside Dubai, we will consider a refund provided that proof of this relocation is submitted to us at least two weeks prior to the start of Term 1.
  • You will be able to re-enroll your child by clicking the following link and completing the re-enrolment process. This will provide you the opportunity to pay online with a credit card or you are welcome to pay at the school accounts office. The deposit can only be accepted by the Accounts Department once your re-enrolment process is complete.
  • If you do not complete the re-enrolment process before the cut-off date, a Transfer Certificate will automatically be generated and your place may be offered to a student on our Waiting List.
  • If you do not wish to re-enroll for September, please log on to the GEMS Parent Portal, to request a Transfer Certificate.

By re-enrolling your child, you agree that the terms and conditions communicated in your Parent School Contract shall continue to apply.

All parents need to pay a deposit of 5% of the annual school fee per child in order to secure your child’s place at GEMS FirstPoint School - The Villa for the relevant Academic Year. The re-enrolment fee will be due by April and is credited to your Term 1 School Fees.
