A very warm welcome to the ultra-modern and vibrant GEMS Westminster School – Ras Al Khaimah, in the United Arab Emirates, where we currently teach children from FS2 to year 13.

Located in Ras Al Khaimah, in the northern part of the UAE, we offer the internationally recognised National Curriculum of England, preparing students to take the General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level and A Level Examinations of the Universities of Cambridge and London (UK).

Our dedicated teachers have developed child-centred programmes based on the highly successful Westminster School in Dubai. We are all enjoying the new custom-built campus with great facilities for learning – inside and outside the classroom.

These facilities include an indoor multipurpose sports hall, outdoor football fields, junior activity rooms, music and art rooms, a state-of-the-art science laboratory, a dedicated ICT suite and spacious, comfortable and inspirational classrooms with interactive Promethean boards.

As you can probably tell from our long list of facilities, although academic excellence is our priority, we also place a strong emphasis on creating lifelong learners and developing the qualities our students need to become responsible and valuable members of the global society.

As such, extra-curricular activities have an important role to play at this private school in the United Arab Emirates. We have a huge range of activities on offer to showcase our young learners’ talents, or help them discover some new ones!

Along with plenty of creative, musical and artistic options to uncover your child’s passions, the Westminster school also offers a wide range of individual and team based sporting pursuits.

“Marhaba!” Welcome to GEMS Westminster School Ras Al Khaimah.

 "Education is like a lantern which lights your way in a dark alley” - Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan

GEMS Westminster School Ras Al Khaimah (WSR) is a values-driven school, providing an outstanding education through our four core values: Leading Through Innovation, Pursuing Excellence, Growing by Learning and Global Citizenship. These values are woven into all GEMS schools and are the essence of our DNA. They are not symbolic; we live and breathe them.

At WSR, we are committed to providing a first-class education for students. WSR is a richly diverse and exciting international learning community. We have high aspirations for all our students and believe that education is the passport to their future. We provide quality education, reflected in our excellent record of nurturing confidence in our students and guiding them to exceed their potential. The key characteristics of WSR are high expectations, aspirations, excellence and a belief that all can succeed; contributing creativity, innovation and enterprise alongside tradition and heritage; developing young people who are confident, resilient, compassionate and global citizens.

From KG1 through to Grade 12, the quality of our all-through school allows parents to rest assured that their children are being nurtured to become truly remarkable citizens, contributing to their communities with empathy, tolerance and wisdom. As WSR students, they will hold themselves accountable to our high standards and, when the time comes, graduate with an education that will open doors to higher education, employment and beyond.

Our teachers are the key to your child’s educational success; we ensure they are supported and highly skilled to provide the standards that we expect. Every child is unique and special; we harness their strengths and develop them into well-rounded individuals. Our curriculum is creative and exciting, underpinned by the National Curriculum for England. We ensure all students are equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to progress successfully through each grade and key stage. Our teachers are highly qualified, using globally recognised teaching techniques and universal learning strategies to maximise each student’s potential.

Our motto is One Tribe, One Family, which reflects our belief that it takes a community to instil and reinforce excellence. Through close collaboration with our WSR families, from home to school, our students are raised to be kind, caring and bright, and to excel in academic subjects, creative arts and sports.

WSR graduates exude confidence in their abilities, empowered with the knowledge that they are ready for the journey that is life. We want our students to become global explorers who are intellectual, articulate, thoughtful and empathetic, who are socially, ethically and environmentally responsible.

GEMS Westminster School Ras Al Khaimah, opened in 2013, is part of the GEMS Education group, one of the largest private K-12 education providers in the world, where ‘We see genius in every child’. I look forward to working with our community to continue to build a successful educational legacy for our children today and the generations that follow.
