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.

At GEMS, all students have access to trained professional counsellors who provide a range of support. Every school also has a designated Child Safeguarding Lead, supported centrally by the GEMS-wide Safeguarding Team.

    All our schools are 100 per cent inclusive. Always. That means no one is ever turned away, no matter what their unique individual needs.
