Message from Head of BSK


I graduated from the University of Wales in 1987, returning to the same university in 1995 to complete my Master’s degree in Education (M.Ed.).  Before coming to RAK, I served as a Head Teacher in three very different primary schools in South Wales.

I have been the Head Teacher here at the British Primary School, Khuzam, for the past 12 years and happily settled in RAK with my family. It only seems like yesterday that I started here in 2007, but things have changed a lot during that time as we have grown from a three-form entry school of 540 children to a growing school of 1,300 students. 

Every day is different in my role as Head Teacher, and it is never boring! I love leading the school, challenging, and supporting staff and children to be the best they can be.

I firmly believe our school will continue to offer a broad and balanced curriculum that suits all our students' needs. Our students will understand the values of sensitivity, respect, tolerance, and cooperation in such a multi-cultural school community.

Welcome to The British School Khuzam, a long-established haven for your children in the heart of Ras Al Khaimah.

Our school offers a broad and balanced curriculum that suits the needs of most students. In such a multi-cultural school community, we are confident that our students will do great things, underpinned by a sound academic foundation and values of sensitivity, respect, tolerance, and cooperation.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to Khuzam.
