Education provider Amity Group is planning to open new schools in Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates and Oman, part of a $35 million investment, Arabian Business has reported.

Both schools will provide the British curriculum. Atul Chauhan, president of Amity Foundation and chancellor of Amity University, said: “We are working towards opening the two new schools by the next year academic session. There is a need for good-quality schools [in the UAE] and we have an exceptional record.”

Noida-based Amity’s network across the Gulf region will increase to five schools, adding to others currently operating in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.

Chauhan stated that Amity aims to become a leading player in the Gulf education sector, adding: “Dubai is fast emerging as a regional international hub for education and we want to position our group as a leading institution there, providing a global standard of excellence in this field. We want to contribute to building the UAE’s education capacity.”
