About GEMS

Trusted for over 55 years and now a third generation education family, GEMS Education began in a single school room in Dubai.

Today, we have the privilege of educating over 190,000 students from over 176 countries through GEMS owned and managed schools globally; over 270,000 students access resources through our services division; and we will impact 20 million by 2020 students through the initiatives of our Charity partner Varkey Foundation.


About the School

GFS (Gems Founders School) opened its doors to over 1800 students in September 2016 from FS1 – Year 8.

This is the most successful school opening in GEMS history in terms of enrolment. In September 2017 we welcomed over 3500 students and extended the school to Year 9.

Since opening, we have established a positive learning environment for our children and staff following the National Curriculum for England. We have three main pillars that are being embedding at GFS: Languages and Cultural Understanding, Character and Mindfulness.

As a British international school with over 100 nationalities, it is important that we value all our languages and cultural understanding and we use this as a catalyst to embrace the culture, history and beliefs of our student body. Mindfulness allows us to interweave the practice of being mindful in the everyday life of our children and we believe will have positive long-term effects on the students’ academic results.

Now in September 2018 we are opening our Year 10 and Year 12, IGCSE and A Level curriculum, and looking forward to starting with 3800 children as we reach nearly full capacity. GEMS Founders School is a truly unique school and anyone who comes to work here has a unique opportunity to leave their mark.
