School History

A little school with a big heart and big ambitions

GEMS Royal Dubai School has gone from strength to strength since opening its doors in 2005 and is today acknowledged as one of the leading British primary schools in Dubai recognised as Outstanding in all categories by BSO (British Schools Overseas).

Offering a world-class education founded on the National Curriculum for England (NNCFE)

GEMS Royal Dubai School offers an enriched version of the New National Curriculum for England, which places emphasis on the core subjects and careful monitoring of progress to ensure a record of academic success. This is complimented by outstanding facilities and provision in the foundation subjects which include the Creative Arts, PE, Humanities and Social Studies.

Our school continues to move with the times, embracing new approaches to learning and technology, preparing students well for the inescapable challenges of change that the 21st century will bring. This has helped to make GEMS Royal Dubai School the only outstanding school in the area offering The New National Curriculum for England, with excellent teachers trained in the UK. The school is certified with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and combines the best of British educational standards and methodology with an awareness of the local cultural and regional context.

Striving for Excellence

GEMS Royal Dubai School strives for excellence in everything we do. Your child's academic needs are our top priority and we encourage our students to develop their strengths outside as well as inside the classroom through an extensive range of Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs). A focus on student’s personal development promotes positive attitudes to learning. We also strongly value links with parents and work hard to develop effective home-school partnerships. This includes regular communication and times for us to meet and listen to each other as well as an exciting mix of performances, exhibitions, competitions and sporting events. What is most important in our school is a warm family atmosphere where the children feel safe, secure and happy.
