About Us

Welcome to GEMS Wellington Academy, Al Khail

Opened in September 2013, GEMS Wellington Academy-Al Khail is an international world class school dedicated to fostering a passion for excellence in learning and in life. We provide rich and relevant learning opportunities based on the highly successful GEMS Wellington Schools academic learning model.

For the 2018-19 school year we are accepting Foundation Stage – Year 12 registrations, and will grow over the years to be a full FS-Year 13 school. We are excited to be opening Year 12 in September (subject to KHDA approval) and we have developed an exciting post-16 curriculum, details of which you can find under the Learning tab.

There is a high expectation so that all students excel and make significant progress well beyond expectations that are commensurate to their age. Children learn in vibrant, inclusive and creative learning environments that encourage, challenge, curiosity and choice. Our standards create a learning programme that is exceptionally rich, relevant and enjoyable. We are an internationally minded, world class school dedicated to fostering a passion for learning. We provide rich, relevant, international and intercultural learning opportunities that result in individual growth.

GEMS Wellington Academy-Al Khail delivers programmes for learning that are deeply rooted in the National Curriculum for England (NCfE) and enhanced by best practice globally so that students achieve the best possible academic outcomes and develop strong character for lifelong learning and success.

GEMS Wellington Academy-Al Khail celebrates the diversity of cultures, backgrounds, abilities and skills. The curriculum is values-driven and the GEMS core values bring a breadth of vision to the educational programme with extracurricular activities offered. Students learn to make decisions independently and solve problems effectively, and interact positively with others.
