Welcome to the GEMS Wellington International School's website. We are one of the few recognised outstanding schools in the UAE and our students have again achieved excellent results in the 2012 examination season.
No matter what the age of the student, central to everything that we do at WIS is focused on the development of the independent, flexible learner, who is fully prepared for advanced study and work in the ever changing demands of the 21st century. We genuinely care about all people within our school community. I have the highest expectations of both my staff and the whole student body. Central to this vision is the drive and determination to ensure that everyone maximises their potential and performance in all strands of school life.
At the heart of our entire academic, personal development and extra curricular programmes are the four GEMS Core values of Leadership Qualities, Universal Values, Forward Thinking and World Citizenship. Through outstanding learning and teaching and the constant reinforcement of the Core Values, we can fully prepare all of our students for adult life, to enable them all to practice and develop leadership qualities, to be highly motivated, confident and creative independent learners and most importantly understand the value of being respectful and tolerant international citizens.
Highly effective home/school partnerships are central to everything we do at WIS. We genuinely believe that keeping parents fully informed and engaged in their child’s education from a very early age will fully support and maximise academic and social development. A full programme of parental consultation evenings, open forums, parental engagement workshops, coffee mornings and our open door policy will ensure that the parental body is kept completely informed of all school developments and fully empowered to support their child throughout all stages of their education.
I hope that you find browsing through our website both useful and informative. Should you wish to visit our school, please contact the admissions department to arrange an appointment.
