About RAK Academy
RAK Academy is an independent, co-educational international family of schools, situated in beautiful Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), the northernmost emirate of the UAE. Just one hour’s drive from Dubai International Airport and 20 minutes’ drive from Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, our schools provide British and IB curriculum to over 2700 students from over 97 different nationalities across its 5 campuses, each with its own unique character. Founded in 1975, it was the first international school in the northern region. Along with the Secondary School there are four Primary schools: three British Curriculum schools, and an International Baccalaureate PYP school.
The RAK Academy Family of Schools is fully accredited with the International Baccalaureate (IBO), Council of International Schools (CIS), British Schools Overseas (BSO) and a member of British Schools of the Middle East (BSME). It is also inspected by the UAE Ministry of Education.
The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is located within an easy drive of Dubai but is relatively a quieter and cheaper place to live. It is well-suited for families and the more adventurous alike, with a wealth of outdoor and leisure activities. Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE’s highest mountain, offers several designated trails suited to all walkers – from family to more experienced hikers. It is also home to the World’s Longest Zipline, certified by the Guinness World Records.
Having a cooler climate and a mountainous landscape to the north, and white beaches of the Gulf coast to the west, RAK attracts a large tourist population. Consequently shopping, eating out and leisure are well-catered for, a wonderful and liberal part of UAE with an amazing cultural and geographical past. The emirate is home to UAE’s highest restaurant “1484 by Puro” which is situated 1,484 meters above sea level. Ideally positioned on the mountain-facing façade of the Jais Adventure Peak, an entire side of the venue consists of ceiling to floor glass windows that open up to uninterrupted views of the serene landscape, framed by year-round sunny blue skies and breath-taking sunsets, where guests can marvel at the spectacle of warm evening hues and the far-reaching mountains beyond.
The school offers a competitive international salary and benefits package. This would include a tax-free salary including housing allowance, annual travel allowance, medical insurance and visas for self and dependents residing in the UAE. There is also provision for free education for up to two (2) dependent children aged 18 years and below. You would also have access to our professional development opportunities.
