Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai fees and information

2021-2022 fee range not decided yet (fee schedule maybe in 2021). A fee range of approximately AED 60k-130k is charged by other high-end schools in Dubai operated in partnership with prestigious UK schools like Kent College, North London Collegiate, Repton. RGSG Qatar fee range is QAR 46,000-52,000 for 2019-2020 (AED 1 ~ QAR 1) but that might not be a useful indication.
RGS Guildford already operates an international campus in Doha, Qatar. Dubai, UAE will be the second overseas branch of RGS Guildford.
Website possibly at eventually (domain was registered to Cognita Schools Limited in 2019).
Location: Tilal Al Ghaf (Talal Al Ghaf) community (mostly sand in 2019), behind GEMS United School and GEMS United Academy. Plot number 6824070.

Teaching jobs and vacancies at RGSG Dubai. Be careful of any online sites advertising fake or scam jobs. RGSG is a real school (planned) but Dubai and UAE school names are often used for job scams. New schools without a website or a new website can be trumped by fake websites initially when applicants search for jobs. Confirm any jobs with an authoritative source such as Cognita Education or RGS Guildford. Jobs advertised in publications like the TES are usually trustworthy. Note that except for management or construction workers, it is unlikely any real teaching jobs will be advertised before October 2020.

12 November 2019 (site visit)

Construction started in Oct or Nov 2019? Reported or updated on UAE construction information directories beginning November 2019. So far there's a fence, a gate, a hole in the ground, and construction workers doing their thing.
No direct contact information yet, try either RGS Guildford UK or Cognita Schools for admission and job enquiries but wait a year or so, school won't open until August 2021. And give the new headmaster a chance to get a phone and internet connection from Etisalat first.
