St. Mary's High School is opening its sixth school in the United Arab Emirates, with the latest to open its gates in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in September 2019.
Located in the Khalifa Bin Zayed City area of Ras Al Khaimah, in the RAK Education Zone, the new school will offer the British curriculum from the Foundation Stage (FS) to A level, with a capacity for approximately 1,800 students. Management of the school will be by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres, who also oversee St. Mary’s Catholic High School Muhaisnah.
Currently, St. Mary’s Group of Schools has five schools located in Abu Dhabi, Dubai (Oud Metha and Muhaisnah), Sharjah and Fujairah, serving approximately 8,500 students in the United Arab Emirates. All of the St Mary's schools aim to cater to the holistic development of each child, with the aim of providing a high quality education, affordability, positive discipline and values. They also offer opportunities for the students to participate in projects related to social and environmental issues.
The new RAK school will be purpose-built, with large modern classrooms, equipped with a wide range of technology to enhance teaching and learning, and Wi-Fi throughout the campus. There will be a large multi-purpose hall for sports, assemblies and performance programmes, and an outdoor soccer pitch and basketball courts.
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.”
Ramy Jallad, Group CEO of RAK Education Zone 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.”
All of the schools in the St. Mary's group are managed and operated by the Catholic Church in the UAE, under the leadership of Bishop Paul Hinder.
