Arcadia Preparatory School is a new school which opened in 2016. It provides a British education for primary pupils from FS1 – Year 6.  Arcadia is a forward-thinking school which combines traditionalism with innovation. Arcadia aims to become an 'Exclusively Apple School' which is granted to schools with outstanding leadership, innovation and academic excellence.

Arcadia's academic programmes are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum for England but there are numerous initiatives aimed to enrich the learning experiences of the students.  For example, the 'Enrichment Programme' is delivered within the school day and offers activities led by coaches and experts, homework support by teachers as well as a variety of enrichment programmes offered by the school's teachers.  The School also offers an 'Early Years Explorers Programme' which emphasises young students' natural curiosity for learning. 

Arcadia Preparatory School is an inclusive school and academic support is a priority. An After-school Care Club is available for FS students at an additional cost.

School uniforms, textbooks and access to the Enrichment Programme are all included in the school fees.  Students joining in the 2016 – 2017 school year will be able to access a 30% discount which will be continued each year for the duration of their enrollment at Arcadia.
