Welcome to the RAK Academy International Primary School (IPK)

                             International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for choosing RAK Academy to educate your son/daughter. Our vision at RAK Academy is to provide a

‘Centre of Excellence in Learning at the Heart of the Community’. One way we have chosen to meet this vision is

to adopt the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). The Academy Guiding Statements

and IB PYP curriculum framework provide a national and international approach to learning, enabling students

to meet their potential and future aspirations.


IB PYP students study a research-based international curriculum that accommodates:

  • local traditions and global events, promoting intercultural understandings;

  • an inquiry approach to studying multiple integrated subjects;

  • two world languages and cultures – English and Arabic;

  • a safe and secure setting to develop social behaviour and emotional resilience.


In addition to the mainstream programme we encourage all students to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as art, music, sports, community action and leadership opportunities to capture their interests and passions.

Our mission is to challenge all learners to succeed. As the world changes and faces globalisation we pride ourselves in preparing students to become adaptable enquirers, multilingual responsible global citizens, lifelong learners fully prepared to emerge into positions of great worth to society.

Feel free to contact the school to learn more about our education on offer.


Thank you again.
