Welcome to Dubai Gem

When we look at Dubai Gem today, we see not only a full-fledged institution, but also a school which creates a nurturing environment for students. It is a renowned for its academic accomplishments, unity, and notable professional teaching staff. Currently, Dubai Gem is based on two sites: a Nursery located in Satwa, and the Foundation, Primary and Secondary School situated in Oud Metha.

Dubai Gem follows the British Curriculum leading to ‘O’, ‘AS’, ‘A’ Levels. It is affiliated to the Cambridge University of London and is recognized by the Ministry of Education, Dubai. The school aims at developing an international tone and providing an educational atmosphere that promotes  responsibility and choice. Emphasis is placed on the active participation of students in all fields, leading to their overall progress. The language of instruction and communication is English and the majority of text books used is imported from the United Kingdom.

Welcome to a new school year! I am delighted and honored to be appointed Principal of Dubai Gem Private School. Our school community is dedicated to the development of each student and will work tirelessly to ensure all students are successful and become lifelong learners. Our main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.

Results of the Board Examinations conducted in May/June 2016 have been very impressive. We can confidently say that attainment at the IGCSE level is Outstanding. Individual performances of some students has been spectacular. Ayaan Mehta with 9 A* and Prathna Lal, Jash Bherwani and Soham Joshi with 8A* lead the list which has more than 75 % of our students getting between A* –  C.

It is a privilege to lead this learning community. I believe that parents, teachers, support staff, community and administration all have important roles to encourage our children to become active, life-long learners. It is my sincere desire to lead a community that will provide opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive citizens in our vastly changing society.

I believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students.  With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Dubai Gem.  Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the Parent Support Team, Clubs and Activities volunteer, Blood Donation sponsor or chaperone for our community service programmes, you are encouraged to be involved.

We at Dubai Gem Private School believe that every child is unique and deserves the best start in life. Children develop and learn fastest in their first years of life. In order to foster this, Dubai Gem  provides a stimulating curriculum and environment to ensure that your child has every opportunity to explore, share experiences and learn basic skills. The Foundation Stage Curriculum begins in Kindergarten and is completed by the end of FS2. There are 7 areas of learning and development in the early years setting. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.

The Primary School  is a thriving, happy place where children from many cultural backgrounds are encouraged to work together and “Strive for Excellence”. Our aim is for each individual to attain their best by providing children with a holistic education based on the latest developments in the UK National Curriculum 2014, tailored so that our multi-national students can thrive. We recognise that children have individual learning needs and therefore ensure that each child has an appropriate level of work to challenge them to the best of their capabilities.

The aim of our curriculum is to provide a challenging course of study with high standards that will make the students responsible learners who can not only work collaboratively, but also be accountable for their own academic and developmental progress. Students will graduate as lifelong learners who will make valuable contributions to society. The graduates will possess the necessary skills and knowledge to empower their success in our diverse and interdependent world. Students in Year 7 and Year 8 follow a common curriculum designed to provide a broad and balanced knowledge base and learning skills appropriate to high achieving students. In the year 7 & 8, students choose one language (French, Hindi or Urdu). In addition to the full range of National Curriculum subjects, students study PSHE, Art and Design and Technology.
