Tuition and Fees

DBGS is part of the International Schools Group, a not-for-profit organisation of independent schools, operating in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for over fifty years. The not-for-profit model is the gold standard in international education as 100% of its revenue is reinvested into the schools. The fees below apply to the school year 2020-2021.

ISG Tuition Payment Instructions

ISG has launched the "RMS" system, a new payment method for tuition invoices. "RMS" is a feature offered by Alawwal Bank that will allocate your payment directly towards your child's invoice, using your child's unique IBAN number. You will use all the same bank details as above except the IBAN number. Instead, once your child is admitted, ISG will provide an individual IBAN number for your child that you will use for all subsequent payments. Please see the RMS Instructions and Guide for further details.
