  • Name changed from RAKESS British Curriculum School to RAK Academy British Curriculum Primary School (RAK Academy BC school campus).
  • Website updated to www.rakacademy.org (previously was www.rakess.org - don't visit, is now spam).
  • Email contact updated to bc.admissions@rakacademy.org. Previously westley.hughes@rakess.org - might not be valid since domain rakess.org is spam, although some sources still list it as valid. Updated head's email address is westley.hughes@rakacademy.org.

  • Ras Al Khaimah English Speaking School British Curriculum (RAKESS BC school) campus open January 2008, principal is Westley Hughes.
  • See RAKESS international curriculum school information for RAKESS IB campus contact details.
  • RAKESS BC website also at www.rakess.info (or no longer). Domain www.rakess.net is for RAKESS international campus, www.rakess.com is spam.
  • For special needs students, RAKESS BC website says "Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision at the school is no more than can be reasonably expected of a mainstream class teacher and support from the school's Special Educational Needs Coordinator."
