GEMS Cambridge International School (GCIS) – Abu Dhabi, is a thoroughly modern school which takes an equally modern approach to education. Located just off the Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Road in Al Mafraq, Adu Dhabi, this British curriculum school delivers an exceptional standard of education to children at foundation stage all the way through to Year 13, from age 3-18.

The GCIS – Abu Dhabi, is an international school with a real difference, providing children from all over the world with invaluable opportunities to realise their full potential academically, socially and personally.

The ‘British’ National Curriculum prepares students for the IGCSEs, AS & A Level University of Cambridge examinations, which are recognised by colleges and universities around the world. There is also the opportunity to study vocational subjects to prepare students for the world of work.

This all starts with the foundation programme for children aged 3-5, which prepares the school’s youngest and most enthusiastic learners to begin the National Curriculum. This starts at the age of five in Key Stage 1, and continues through to Key Stage 4 and 5.

This approach is certainly paying off, with educational results that are significantly above the UK average. Pupils from our British curriculum school in Abu Dhabi have been accepted to 97 universities from 26 countries in the last three years alone.

Of course, extra-curricular are a huge part of international school life, and GCIS – Abu Dhabi, promotes the all-round development of pupils with a fantastic range of creative, musical and sporting activities. Regular sporting activities include cricket, football, rugby, athletics and swimming in the school’s very own 25 metre pool. Chess, photography, arts, drama and debating clubs are also available.
