Commenting on the introduction of the school's sixth form, Kings' Al Barsha principal Alan Williamson said: "Kings' is one of Dubai's foremost centres of academic excellence. Our new and dynamic Sixth Form offers an exciting, stimulating and challenging environment for learning, which will ensure our students excel in intellectual enquiry, debate and search for explanation well beyond their A Level curriculum."

Our students will enhance their intellectual, personal and social development by taking full advantage of the fantastic opportunities provided at Kings'. We are confident that our students will go on to win places at top universities worldwide. We are privileged to be preparing tomorrow's adults, today."
