About us

The WellSpring Private School, Ras Al Khaimah teacher and students in class

We inspire and challenge our students every day. Not just to memorize books, but to live them; not just to study science, but to experiment with it.

A warm welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to The WellSpring Private School! We are committed to providing transformative, holistic education that develops globally minded individuals who learn, love and lead. At WellSpring, we strive to see this in our students, providing them with the highest-quality education, delivered by world-class teachers, in a school with a deep understanding of local culture.

At all LifePlus schools, we believe somebody’s character formation—and how they go on to apply what they learn—are as essential as academics. Because of this, we help teach and engage students in our LifePlus 9 Qualitities for Life, helping them to become confident, courageous and globally minded individuals.

Emphasizing character and a robust, best-in-class educational program makes The WellSpring Private School a great center of growth and learning. We nurture a warm, caring and encouraging community for our students and staff alike.

I look forward to welcoming you for a visit!

Jeff Kingma
Head of School

Our values

about The WellSpring Private School in Ras Al Khaimah luncheon for students and families
Discerning then acting as one


Our school is most successful when we’re all working as a team! Our Parents’ Council meets regularly and organizes a variety of events to bring students, staff and parents together. Informally, you’ll also see our community spirit at work among our staff, with many of them living and enjoying life together outside of the classroom.

Serve our communities and cultures


Students at WellSpring dedicate much of their time, skills and energy to others. From recycling our waste, to fundraising for natural disasters; from honoring local workers with gifts, to volunteering with Special Olympics; we show and teach our students how to make a positive difference.

Inspiring change to realize greater potential


There’s more to learning than gaining knowledge. Learning stretches who we are, challenges us, and offers us a fuller life. We also make sure every child in the school knows they are loved, valued, and capable. In fact, our dedicated program for People of Determination was one of the first of its kind in Ras al Khaimah.

Making a positive difference in the lives of others


Learning gives us the knowledge and skills to get out of our comfort zone and contribute something of worth. Our courses develop and celebrate leadership qualities in our students through critical and creative thinking; with many of them going on to world-class universities and successful careers.

A brief history


Small beginnings
WellSpring opened its doors in 2015, renting a small space inside RAK Academy for 175 students. At that time, we only offered a kindergarten and elementary program.


Growing with our students
The growth of the school meant additional classes were built in 2017 to accommodate our students moving up in grades, as well as having room for new students joining the community.


Branching out
This quickly became too small, and new classrooms were built on the same site in 2018. We soon needed a second campus for our secondary students.


One extended family
At the end of the 2020–21 school year, we moved to a single campus with enough space for all our Pre K–12 students and staff to learn and grow together in ways we never could before.
