APPLE DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL

We will bring education to life by exclusively using Apple technology for all teaching, learning and administrative tools; that puts us on track to become an ‘Apple Distinguished School’.

lessons on a daily basis."

EARLY YEARS EXPLORERS

We acknowledge that children learn best through first hand experience in relation to themselves, their senses and the world around them. For this reason, we have designed the Early Years Explorers (EYE) programme, an approach based on the concept that powerful learning is built upon harnessing children’s natural curiosity in ways that help them to develop new skills and understanding in context with their environment.

"We aim to create an environment where children
aspire to learn."

What makes Arcadia one of the best British schools in Dubai for your child?

The Arcadia Preparatory School ethos is based firmly on the belief that through harnessing a child’s natural curiosity and desire to learn and by providing stimulating learning delivered by highly motivated teachers, each child will be empowered to reach his or her full potential.

Our purpose designed primary school has been built with the needs of primary school aged children at its core. With the most up to date learning resources to support the new National Curriculum for England and the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, pupils benefit from a truly modern approach to primary school education within a supportive and nurturing environment. Our comprehensive learning programme is designed to immerse pupils in a nurturing ecosystem where they can develop understanding across a diverse range of areas.

A holistic preparatory learning curriculum from one of the top British curriculum schools today

In our pursuit to be recognised as one of the best British schools in Dubai today, we have designed a curriculum based on three foundational learning programmes: The National Curriculum for England, the Early Years Foundation Stage, and the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 programmes of the National Curriculum.

Based on the British curriculum, we will cultivate the learning of pupils in the aspects of English, mathematics, science, arts, computing, design and technology, geography, history, music and physical education. By immersing them in a well-balanced educational programme, our British international school is able to hone their abilities to be competitive in the academe and the real world.

In order to advance their communication skills, our British curriculum will grow their understanding of unfamiliar printed words, allowing them to create and connect sounds to their corresponding printed counterparts and vice versa. Our British international school will also hone their knowledge and ability to structure words and phrases grammatically.

In addition, we have integrated the study of the Arabic language and the history and culture of the UAE to better prepare our pupils to be competitive in the regional and world market. As one of the leading private schools in the country today, we will enhance the academic and social intelligence of our pupils for balanced, holistic, well-rounded growth.

We are among the best equipped private schools in the nation and the world

Our highly qualified teachers have been recruited from a list of top British and international primary schools, and bring the best of the extensive British curriculum and learning experience to The Arcadia Preparatory School, bringing us to forefront amongst other private schools in Dubai.

Our extended primary school day delivers a unique Enrichment Learning

Programme, providing exciting learning opportunities, extracurricular activities and homework support to create the best, most balanced educational environment for our pupils.

The Arcadia Preparatory School will provide the very best British private school experience for our pupils.
