Join your child's learning journey

Parents and guardians should be at the heart of any child's education. While teachers are there at the front of the classroom, it's the family you come home to who provide an essential foundation for academic success. That's why we believe that parental involvement in school is so important.

Research regularly demonstrates just how essential parent and caregiver engagement is to an excellent education. To make sure our pupils are given the very best start, our leading private schools around the world work hard to develop strong partnerships with the parents and guardians of our diverse body of students. We're committed to encouraging supportive, hands-on parenting in all GEMS Schools.

Close communication

Close communication is at the core of our partnership approach. Keeping guardians in the loop regarding their child's progress is an essential part of what we do. From consultation evenings and written reports, to an "open door" policy which ensures parents can speak with us at any stage, we keep those all-important channels of communication wide open.  Make an appointment today to speak one-to-one with any member of our teaching staff in confidence.

Parental partnership

Whether it's keeping our campus tidy, or planting new greenery in our grounds, there are all sorts of opportunities for parental involvement at GEMS Schools. We regularly welcome parents and guardians onto campus to help nurture a sense of community among teachers, parents and students.

Our 3-a-day parental engagement approach

Widely respected research reveals just how crucial parental engagement is to student achievement. Our 3-a-day mobile app is just one of the ways we're helping parents provide encouragement and inspiration to their children. The app is an easy tool that delivers daily ideas to help you get involved in your young person's education.

The app is based on simple, practical advice from our teachers and counselors. It features 3 key sections:

  • Something to talk about
  • Activities to share
  • Guidance to encourage children

GEMS parents can download our 3-a-day app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
