Flexi Boarding Fees

Reserved exclusively for existing SISD students from Grade 6-12, the flexi-boarding package is an addition to our full and weekly boarding options. Flexi-boarding allows students to remain on campus and stay at the boarding house for a minimum stay of 6 nights. Flexi Boarding is available for boys and girls ages 11-18, for a maximum of 5 weeks per academic year.

There are many reasons why this option might be ideal for families. Students who have long daily commutes to and from school might prefer to break up their travelling during periods of high co-curricular commitments. In addition, students who wish to dedicate more time to prep and revision would benefit from being in school for longer periods. Occasional boarding can provide convenient support for parents with busy work schedules or allow them to take short breaks or holidays during term-time, without disrupting their child’s education.

We would be delighted to discuss which type of boarding would be ideal for you. Please
contact us to arrange a personal tour of the boarding houses.

Flexi boarding fees: 2‘500AED per 6 night stay. 525 AED (incl. VAT) per additional night 

Fees include: all meals and snacks, accommodation, structured homework session with tutor support (if no other after-school activity is scheduled), evening boarding activity programme.

Details:

  • Sunday, drop-off before 7.00pm 
  • Monday, 3 meals
