Arabic language and Islamic experience

Learning the Arabic language is crucial for knowledge development on the one hand and for preserving cultural identity on the other hand. The curriculum of the Arabic language in our school is based on understanding, researching, investigating and asking questions, and it also depends on the curriculum of the Ministry of Education in the United Arab Emirates. The Arabic language course in our school is compulsory for Arab students, while the rest of the students until the ninth grade are taught as a foreign language.

All Muslim students are required to study Islamic education compulsorily. The system used in “British Reach” school guarantees the highest standards in teaching Arabic, by motivating students to participate in activities and projects, and not just by memorizing. We also depend on teaching Islamic education on the method of developing skills with the aim of bringing up independent citizens and a sense of responsibility.


At ISP, learning is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to continually provide the best learning opportunities possible for our students and their families. We believe that as part of our students’ learning journey it is important that they have the chance to experience learning outside of the classroom and connect with other ISP students. As a global group of schools, our students benefit from being part of a wider international community, which provides many additional learning and cultural opportunities.

A once in a lifetime opportunity

Our school participates in the Expo 2020 Dubai, which witnesses the presence of countries and international institutions on a single platform to exchange experiences and knowledge and review technologies that will have an important role in promoting cooperation in the field of education at the global level by providing creative innovations and achieving social progress.

The Expo Dubai will be held under the slogan “Connecting Minds and Creating the Future”. During the exhibition, our school will focus on the sub-theme “Emirates Heritage”. Students at the school will learn about the rich culture and traditions of the UAE, and the country’s plans to build a brighter future. Students at Reach School will also learn about the stunning architecture of the Emirates Pavilion, which has been designed as a falcon on the fly.


Reach British School in Abu Dhabi prides itself on offering a high quality education at an
affordable price. Our scholarship program has been launched to attract and support talented
secondary students who show a passion for and potential in their chosen field.
