Foremarke School Dubai has been rebranded as Repton Al Barsha.

The school will begin physical upgrades to its campus in 2021, with full re-branding set to be completed by the start of the next academic year.

The UK curriculum school, located in Al Barsha South, has announced it will be expanding to year nine in the next academic year.

It currently provides teaching for pupils up to and including year eight.

This would be followed by an organic year-on-year growth to provide the IGCSE curriculum up until Year 11 and A-levels for years 12 and 13.

Foremarke was already part of the Repton family of schools in the Emirates but will become the third school to take on the group title, joining Repton Dubai and Repton Abu Dhabi.

“While the school has always been part of the Repton Family of Schools, it is a proud moment for us to officially welcome another Repton-branded school in the UAE," said David Cook, chief education officer of the Repton Family of Schools and headmaster of Repton School Dubai.

"We want to show gratitude towards our parents and students for their continued support in this endeavour and want them to rest assured that Repton Al Barsha will continue to provide the same level of exceptional education to which they are accustomed."

The move was announced after Foremarke School Dubai's sister school in the UK, Foremarke Hall, changed its name to Repton Prep School this year.

The Repton group of schools in the UAE has sent pupils to prestigious seats of learning such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley.
