A very warm welcome to GEMS Winchester School - Dubai, a modern international school that offers an outstanding British curriculum education to children from foundation stage to year 13.

Established in 2003, this spacious, elegant school near Discovery Gardens, Dubai provides affordable, high quality education to children from around the world. Located in the heart of the residential community ‘The Gardens’, in Jebel Ali Village, Dubai, this unique school comprises domes, archways, pyramids and high ceilings to create a vibrant and inspiring multicultural setting.

To reflect the international standing of our school, we teach the National Curriculum for England, a broad and balanced curriculum currently taught in over 150 countries around the world.

In years 1 to 9, students progress through the curriculum to develop their skills and competencies. In years 10 and 11 they choose their subjects and prepare for the IGCSE examinations. In year 12 and 13, they take AS and A Level examinations, which prepare our students for further education in prestigious colleges and universities around the world.

This international school consists of two adjacent buildings, one for secondary students and one for our younger learners at primary level. Both buildings boast an outstanding range of facilities, including spacious classrooms with Promethean interactive whiteboards; a multi-purpose auditorium for indoor games and musical or theatrical endeavours; a large sport field for outdoor sports; music and art rooms; state-of-the-art science laboratories; six computer labs with multimedia capabilities; a well-stocked library; and indoor and covered play areas for all our students to enjoy.

A warm welcome to The Winchester family where: “EVERY CHILD MATTERS”.

We are very proud of our school and the accomplishments of our students. The dynamic combination of our professional educators, dedicated parents and community members ensure that all students achieve beyond their potential and become lifelong learners to ensure their place as Global Citizens in International Communities around the world tomorrow. 

We encourage all of our students to become independent and creative thinkers. We take pride in the diversity of our school and provide a climate of respect and acceptance for everyone and offer a safe and secure environment in which every child is nurtured to achieve beyond their potential.

The children of The Winchester School are a diversely talented and unique group of individuals, who are both a source of inspiration and motivation for us all. A holistic and child centred approach leads to all decisions, developments and strategic planning actions for the well-being and success of all students. I especially want all of our students to aspire to be the best that they possibly can and I am committed to the school and its ethos.

Whilst preparing our students for an ever growing and challenging world, at Winchester we place GEMS Core values at the core of all that we do for our students, parents, teachers and staff. Delivering the National Curriculum for England, our school focuses upon 21st Century skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.

We are very passionate about providing the best possible learning opportunities and experiences for all children irrespective of their strengths, challenges or needs. We continually strive to provide an inclusive, enabling and safe environment which empowers all our children to try their best and achieve beyond expectations. All teachers personalised approach to learning embraces and responds to diversity in individual learning styles and provides children with the skills, competence and attitudes for their future. 

Our school offers enrichment through various activities and events during school and through extra-curricular activities. We provide a wide range of opportunities in sports, art, cultural and performing arts programme beyond the school day as well as access to holiday camps, residential trips and participate in competitions and local events.

The well-being of our community- students, parents and staff is paramount and we place great emphasis on building relationships with high quality personal and social skills. Happy, safe and secure environment at Winchester directly impacts positively upon attitudes to learning and leading to highest standards of achievement.

I look forward to working with you for the benefit of your children. The parent-school partnership is something I firmly endorse and aim that, together; we can provide the very best educational experience for all our students. A partnership doesn’t mean that we will always be in agreement, but what we will be is always focused on what we feel is most beneficial, educationally, for the children of this school. I want the very best for all of you, your families and your children. I look forward to the challenges and achievements that we will share together with excitement.

Together I am confident that The Winchester School will continue to grow in spirit and I am excited about being part of that future and the educational and personal journey of every member of The Winchester community.
