Uniform & Kit

The aim is for students to present a neat appearance without being obtrusive, fashionable or competitive in what they wear, or the way in which the uniform is worn.

Form teachers are responsible for checking during morning and afternoon registration that students are well presented. Where they are not, students will be asked for an explanation and sent to the Head of Year who will contact parents, if necessary. All items of uniform and towels should be clearly marked with the name of the student either in indelible pen or by means of sewn-on nametapes. Dubai College uniform, kit and equipment is available from different suppliers depending upon the item.

The following regulation items are stocked at Magrudy Enterprises, located on the Beach Road, Jumeirah (Tel: 344 4192) and at Stitches, located in Street 10, Al Quoz. (Tel: 348 6110).

Mathematical Equipment

The Mathematics Department requires each student to have an electronic, scientific calculator. We prefer Casio models, some of which are listed: fx82TL, fx570MS, fx570W, fx911V, fx100S, fx992S, fx85V, fx100W, fx82MS, fx115W but there are many more available and suitable. Please ensure that the calculator you buy includes the fraction key.

Students are also required to have a set of Mathematical Instruments including: protractor (angle measure), ruler, compass.

Sixth Form students studying Mathematics may also wish to use graphics calculators. The Maths department will order the latest Casio colour graphics model (as recommend by Edexcel) for students (at a cost) each September. Other graphics calculators include Casio fx9860G, fx9750, Sharp EL-9900, Texas TI-30, TI-34, TI-83, TI-84. Graphics calculators which have a keyboard or are symbolic manipulators are not allowed in GCE exams. Examples are Texas TI-89 and TI-92).

Locker padlocks - optional

Lockers are provided to hold the majority of students’ books. If students wish to lock their lockers they should obtain a ‘combination’ padlock and give the number to their form teacher.
