Royal Flight School's aim is to provide academic excellence by implementing a challenging, broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum. We encourage pupils to enjoy the adventure of learning and provide them with opportunities to develop a range of skills and knowledge. These will help them to achieve their maximum potential and prepare them academically and socially for the next stage of their education. We seek to establish positive attitudes, self-confidence, good behaviour and personal integrity.
The School is under the Patronage of Royal Court Affairs (RCA) and was established in September 1975 for the children of Royal Flight employees; we now accept children from the wider community but give priority to the employees of Royal Court Affairs and the siblings of current pupils. The majority of pupils are British or Omani but we also have pupils from 30 other countries.
The School was initially located within the Royal Flight Housing compound and moved to its own building in 1987 before the present site opened in May 2016. The new school has its own gymnasium, swimming pool and more space for specialist teachers but there is no plan to increase the number of pupils or classes. Although we are now in wonderful, modern buildings we want to maintain the friendly and inclusive “small school” atmosphere that makes the Royal Flight School special.
The School caters for children aged 3 – 11 with teaching based on the English National Curriculum, adapted as appropriate to our needs. Children are taught the core subjects (English, Maths, Humanities and Science) by the Class Teacher and Specialists teach Arabic, Art, Computing, Drama, French, Music, P.E. and Swimming. Omani students take Arabic and Islamic Studies as per the requirements of the Ministry of Education. We set out to equip children with the skills needed for successful learning so that they can gain maximum benefit from our broad and balanced curriculum, moving on to subsequent education without disadvantage.
