Welcome Message

Welcome to GEMS Royal Dubai School

Dear Parents,

I am delighted to be able to welcome you to GEMS Royal Dubai School (RDS), our BSO Outstanding-rated, high-performing, inclusive and family-oriented community in the heart of Mirdif. At RDS, our students are empowered to learn and develop and supported to become successful and confident contributors in an ever-changing world.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make. Just like you, we believe that the happiness and success of your child are key foundations upon which their future is built; that is why we are a school where every child is valued, every child is encouraged to give their very best, and every child has the chance to grow in confidence by participating in a wide range of inspirational learning experiences.

We pride ourselves on being an extraordinary community where people matter, where a passion for excellence drives everything we do. We are committed to offering a real breadth of education, feeding our students’ minds, while caring passionately about their character development, wellbeing and happiness.

Our outstanding staff are dedicated to delivering a rich curriculum and programme of activities that challenge our students to explore ideas for themselves, whether engaged in learning in the classroom or through musical, artistic, sporting, enterprising or charitable activities.

I can draw on my experience of successfully leading and improving different schools in the UK for over fifteen years as the RDS team and I together build on the amazing work at our school and continue to improve the educational experience for our students.

I am committed to working in close partnership with parents to ensure every child’s success. Our community is built upon the vision of ‘Achieving Excellence Together’; it is a place where students, teachers and parents are committed, ambitious and positive. We provide a solid foundation that is supportive and inclusive, where we welcome and celebrate every individual.

I am deeply committed to ensuring students are given every opportunity to experience exceptional learning opportunities in enabling environments – safe, happy, challenged and successful. Students, staff and parents feeling proud of their efforts and achievements are key drivers for me professionally. Inspiring others to drive forward to reach their goals, never giving up when faced with challenge, is for me what ‘Achieving Excellence Together’ is all about.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to RDS in person and having the chance to introduce you to our wonderful, happy school.
