The RAK Academy Family of Schools is proud to be able to meet the high standards set by these three highly-regarded bodies. We also have separate accreditation from the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) and Cambridge, Edexcel and AQA examination boards.


 

COUNCIL OF INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS


The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a global non-profit membership organisation and it works collaboratively to shape international education through professional services to schools, higher education institutions, and individuals.

“Within CIS membership is schools that have achieved a mark of high quality and rigour - CIS International Accreditation. This recognition signifies that the school has completed a comprehensive self-study and international peer review as part of a continuous improvement process focusing on standards and indicators that promote the development of student knowledge, skills, attributes and actions aligned with the CIS Definition of Global Citizenship. Colleges and universities worldwide acknowledge that a CIS Accredited School meets internationally-agreed and recognised standards and develops global citizens with the qualities and skills that they are seeking in students”.

BRITISH SCHOOLS OVERSEAS

 

Overseas schools describing themselves as “British” are subject to recognition by the British government under the voluntary inspection scheme. The Department for Education (DfE) has put in place arrangements for inspection against a common set of standards that British Schools Overseas can choose to adopt.

The intention of the process is to inform parents of pupils in British Schools Overseas how standards measure up against the standards that apply to independent schools in England. An essential element of the inspection is considering the extent to which the British character of the school is evident in its ethos, curriculum, teaching, care for pupils and pupils’ achievements. By achieving UK inspection based approval, participating schools will be able to demonstrate that they provide a British education that has similar characteristics to an education in an independent school in England.

RAK Academy awarded full CIS accreditation

On December 13, 2016 RAK Academy was awarded full membership with the Council of International Schools.

This recognition signifies that the school has completed a comprehensive self-study and international peer review as part of a continuous improvement process.
