About Us

The Arcadia Preparatory School is a warm, vibrant and dynamic new primary school set in the heart of the Jumeirah Village Triangle community. We offer the highest quality education based on the new National Curriculum for England, from the Early Years Foundation Stage (age 3 years) through to Year 4 (age 8 years).

The Abdulla Al Shirawi and Mohan Valrani Scholarship Fund

We are proud to announce that we have extended our scholarship allowing parents to reserve a spot for their child for any future year, as long as they enrol before the end of the 2016-17 academic year. This essentially means that for every year at the school, parents will get a 30% rebate of the KHDA approved fee.

Our unique Enrichment Learning Programme (ELP), complements the core curriculum to provide extended opportunities for learners, and is available for all Year 1 to 4 pupils, at no extra costs to parents.
The programme is based on three key areas:

A Teacher-Led Enrichment Programme

In school activities taught by our skilled team of teachers; the programme trains and develops all pupils to become active learners, creative artists, confident performers and global communicators.

Activity Sessions Provided by External Coaches and Experts

Parents are able to choose what age-appropriate extracurricular activities they wish their child to undertake within this portion of the programme.

Homework Support Provided by Teachers

This removes the need for stress at home due to homework requirements, and allows for more of that ever so essential family quality time.

At The Arcadia Preparatory School 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.

This approach is 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.

The programme provides a firm foundation for transition to the National Curriculum for England, which children move to in Year 1
