The hard work of our students, teachers and parents is evident in GEMS schools and these results are a true reflection of their commitment to learning and drive to achieve the highest standards. I strongly believe that these results are an indication that our students are well prepared for the next stage in their educational journey, and we look forward to their continued success.”
