RAK Academy

RAK Academy

Curriculum: Four schools in one, offering a mix of UK and IB
Affiliations: BSME, BSO, CIS
Grades: All-Through/primary school/two new schools opening with lower years
Fees: 15,500 AED to 38,000 AED
Location: RAK (Central, Al Rams/Al Hamra)
Distance from Silicon Oasis: 100km/109 mins

The Buzz: One of, if not the biggest, school in the Northern Emirates, with additional dedicated sports centre and school for gifted and talented

Facilities: As the school is set across four campuses, the facilities are on what can only be described as a gargantuan scale. Over 23 acres (that’s 23 football pitches!), top technology in all classrooms, a media centre, canteens, pitches, courts and playing fields, a gifted and talented centre, a dedicated sports centre, libraries, labs, auditoriums and so much more…

Exam Results: No current results available

What WSA says: Another school established by a ruling family, operating under the royal patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah. RAKA is vast, expanding and well financed. With two new schools opening in 2018 to serve the newer housing complexes across the emirate, RAKA clearly has its ’finger on the pulse,’ of RAK.

Sport & Extracurricular Activities: The options are vast. The Facebook page just for RAK IB states that there are over 25 teacher-led activities with a staggering 450 places.

BSO Report: Go!
