For Young Children to Be in School

In the years that children spend with us in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at GEMS Royal Dubai School, they build positive relationships that form the basis of much of their natural development and success at school.



We Love Our Alumni


Hear what our parents have to say

  • We wish the very best of luck to the school. This school is exceptional and very rightly rated outstanding. My son completed his primary from GEMS Royal Dubai School and passed out as Head Boy. We will miss GRDS a lot.

  • My child’s class teacher has always made time to discuss, support and resolve any concern with regards my child’s education. I found the recent meeting very information and helpful and will be implementing the advice in helping my child at home.
