    FPS has been a home like no other to me. It’s a place that has made me who I am in a million different ways; has expedited my growth by giving me a plethora of opportunities to explore my academic and non-academic passions, and by offering an incredibly diverse landscape in which I have made lifelong friends, who I consider akin to family. It’s given me the confidence, skills and experience to go out into the world and make it my own, and I’ll forever be grateful to FPS.

The GEMS Difference

Personalised Learning

We believe every child has the potential to achieve extraordinary things given the freedom to explore, express and challenge themselves. Whether your child is sporty, musical, dramatic, competitive, curious or creative, there is something to provide a wealth of skills, experiences and opportunities. Students across our schools are encouraged to find an activity they like, apply and challenge themselves.

Look Beyond the Classroom
Preparing for the Future

We strongly believe in the importance of ensuring the education our students receive is relevant and therefore also useful. We think it’s essential that what they learn and experience in school fully prepares them for life beyond school, both in terms of careers and, more generally, the future – whatever may lie in store.

Explore Real World Specialisation

Just like you, we want the children in our care to be happy and to view and experience school as a safe space filled with discovery, opportunity and positive challenge. We firmly believe that happy students learn better, engaging in a more meaningful way, and thereby get the most out of their school experience. Which is why ensuring the all-round wellbeing and mental health of our pupils is one of our top priorities.

Explore Wellbeing
Student Experience

Studying at a GEMS school means being exposed to a multitude of inspiring, challenging, energising and rewarding learning experiences. Every day in school is an opportunity – be it in the classroom, in the science lab, on the sports field or on the stage. It’s the accumulation of all these opportunities that makes the GEMS student experience.
