St. Mary’s Group of Schools has started the construction of its sixth school in the UAE. A ground-breaking ceremony was held to mark the construction of St. Mary’s High School in Ras Al Khaimah.

Located in the Khalifa Bin Zayed City area of Ras Al Khaimah, the new school will offer the British curriculum from the Foundation Stage (FS) to A-level, with a capacity of 1,800 students.

Bishop Paul Hinder, the Apostolic Vicar of Southern Arabia, said:

“We are pleased to be able to extend our school system into the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. We believe that an education in any of our Catholic schools, which welcomes students of all religions, nationalities and cultures, will provide them with an excellent academic formation and integral human development. Particular emphasis is laid on imbibing the values of tolerance, respect and justice, which resonate strongly within the society of the UAE.”

The school is slated to open in September 2019 at RAKEZ Academic Zone and will be managed by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres, which also oversees St. Mary’s Catholic High School Muhaisnah.

The school aims to have large modern classrooms equipped with a wide range of technology to enhance teaching and learning with Wi-Fi throughout the campus.

There will be a large multi-purpose hall for sports, assemblies and programmes, and an outdoor soccer pitch and basketball courts.

The school’s design was developed by Urbanism Planning Architecture (UPA) Consultancy while the contract was awarded to Al Hikma Building Contracting (HBC). Ramy Jallad, Group CEO of RAKEZ said:

“St. Mary’s High School is another great addition to the family of qualified education providers we have at the Academic Zone and Ras Al Khaimah but of course, we’re not stopping here as we will continue attracting first-rate institutions which can provide the best learning experience to students of all ages.”

Currently, St. Mary’s Group of Schools has five schools located in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Fujairah.
