Founded in 1988, the Cambridge High School – Abu Dhabi, is an established and high achieving international school that offers an exceptional standard of education based on the British National Curriculum.

Located in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, the Cambridge School offers a safe, nurturing and rewarding environment for young learners aged 3-18, from kindergarten all the way up to year 13.

With a high standard of educational, recreational and specialist facilities, the Cambridge High School offers unrivalled teaching, learning and extra-curricular opportunities to children from all around the world.

Whilst academic excellence is the primary goal of every GEMS school, the Cambridge High School is also committed to helping children develop into lifelong learners and responsible, highly valued members of the global community.

The National Curriculum provides all children with an education that is recognised and held in high esteem by colleges and universities around the world. With GCSE pass rates 20 percent higher than the average English school, this skill based curriculum, with its IGCSE, AS & A Level examinations, allows students to gain access to some of the world’s most prestigious universities.

The Cambridge High School is an international school with a difference, providing specialist programmes to encourage the personal, social, physical and ethical development of every young learner, helping them to achieve their full potential.

An exciting programme of extra-curricular activities has an important part to play developing the abilities of all students, wherever their talents lie. Along with plenty of field trips, cultural, environmental and social events, there is also a wide range of optional sporting and interest based activities on offer, such as cooking, drama, arts and crafts, fashion design and pottery.

On behalf of the staff, the students and myself I welcome you to the GEMS Cambridge High School, Abu Dhabi. We are a highly successful, extremely popular and oversubscribed school for boys and girls aged 4 to 18, with a strong reputation in both the GEMS Education group and Abu Dhabi. At Cambridge High School, we aim to provide an outstanding education for all of the students in our care, and we do this by providing a learning environment, which is inclusive, ambitious and challenging. We are very fortunate to have outstanding students, who come from all corners of the world, and who thrive in our rich, vibrant and diverse school community.

We believe in creating a culture within the school where our parents and students know us, like us and, most importantly, trust us. Our teachers know their students well and encourage each of them to reach their full potential and achieve their aspirations. We want every student here to have the opportunity to learn about themselves, the world and to shape and develop the role they will play in the future. We follow the GEMS education mantra and ‘see genius in every child’. We are a busy, caring and supportive school, which values praise, enjoyment, respect and honesty in all we do. A rich programme of extra curricular provision provides chances for the students to develop outside of the classroom, particularly in skills of confidence, teamwork and leadership.

Life at Cambridge is a seamless journey from age 4 through to sixth form and the experiences gained will have a lasting value. We aim to develop young adults who leave the school with a secure sense of identity, a respect, tolerance for and understanding of difference and diversity, academic success and as well-rounded, confident young people who are ready and able to embrace the challenges and opportunities of adult life. We are very proud of our school and especially proud of our students. Please feel free to visit us at any time and see our wonderful school for yourself. We would be delighted to meet you and welcome you into the Cambridge and GEMS ‘family’
