General Contractual Matters

85. Management:  It is our intention that the terms and conditions will always be operated so as to achieve a balance of fairness between the rights and needs of parents and pupils, and those of the school community as a whole.  We aim to ensure that the School, its culture, ethos and resources are properly managed so that the School, its services and facilities can develop.  We aim also to promote good order and discipline throughout our school community and to ensure compliance with the law. 

86. Legal Contract:  The offer of a place and its acceptance by the parents give rise to a legally binding contract on the terms of these Terms and Conditions. 

87. Representations:  Our website and prospectus describe the broad principles on which the School is presently run and gives an indication of our history and ethos.  Although believed correct at the time of publication, the website and prospectus are not part of any agreement between the Parents and the School.  Parents wishing to place specific reliance on a matter contained in the website, prospectus, or a statement made by a member of staff or a pupil during the course of a conducted tour of the School or a related meeting should seek written confirmation of that matter before entering this agreement. 

88. Third Party Rights:  Only the School and the parents are parties to this contract.  The pupil is not a party to it.  The acts and omissions of parents are binding on the pupil and vice versa as to any matter of behavior, discipline and fees.  All requests and authorities by the parents are treated as being made on behalf of the pupil and vice versa.

89. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction:  These Terms and Conditions shall be construed and governed by the laws of the United Arab Emirates and the School and Parents agree that any legal action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions may be brought in the courts of the United Arab Emirates and the School and Parents submit to the non exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Dubai.
