Authorities have announced the registration details of a new model of schooling that will be implemented in some public schools from the new academic year. The Emirates Schools Establishment (ESE) has detailed the 10 institutions where the ‘Ajyal (generation) Schools’ model will be available and other terms and conditions.

The new model will be applied to all students from grade one to four in 10 schools. This will be expanded to cover 28 schools within three years. The government will bear students’ fees and all operating expenses.


Registration will begin at the end of next week. Students who completed next academic year's enrolment in schools that are now part of Ajyal Schools in April are not required to re-register.


Students who completed next academic year's registration in other public schools and wish to switch to an Ajyal School must register at the end of next week.

Admission of new students to Ajyal Schools will depend on the availability of seats. Private school students of Grades 1-4 will not be eligible to register.

Curriculum and implementation

The Curriculum of Ajyal Schools will combine the national curricula, including Arabic language, Islamic education, moral education and social studies, with the international curricula for subjects such as mathematics, science, and others.

These schools will add value to the national education ecosystem and will be implemented by the ESE in partnership with private education providers that have an extensive experience in operating educational institutes and providing international curricula.
