School Description

Proud to be THE community school in the heart of the Al Qudra corridor.
Founded in 2015, Ranches Primary School quickly established itself as a well-loved and respected community primary school with a prominent place at the centre of the family-friendly residential communities of the Al Qudra corridor. Our school sits at the heart of the vibrant Arabian Ranches 2 community, where children can safely ride or scoot to school and friendships among families thrive. As a standalone primary school, we are in a unique position to provide our children with exclusive access to age-appropriate facilities, rather than having to compete for access with older year groups, which affords a learning journey tailored to the distinct developmental needs of younger students.

We pride ourselves on our track record of preparing children for seamless transitions to Dubai's top-tier secondary schools, an achievement attributable to our holistic approach to education. At RPS, well-being is not just an add-on, but a vital component of our ethos, and we infuse every aspect of school life with an emphasis on nurturing happy, healthy learners.

Extra Curricular Activities

Our Extra-Curricular programme is an essential part of our holistic educational vision.

Enrichment through extra-curricular activities plays a crucial role in the holistic development of our children. These activities provide opportunities for pupils to explore their interests, develop new skills, and build self-confidence outside the boundaries of the traditional classroom.

By offering a diverse range of after-school programmes, such as sports, STEAM, visual and performing arts, languages, and life skills, we encourage our children to discover their passions and unlock their full potential. Participation in extra-curricular activities not only fosters personal growth but also strengthens social bonds, teamwork, and a sense of community among our pupils, making for a well-rounded educational experience.

Examples of free, staff-led Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) include:

Arts & Crafts

Multi Sports

Yoga & Meditation
