About the School
GFS (GEMS Founders School) opened its doors to over 1800 students from FS1 – Year 8. This is the most successful school opening in GEMS history in terms of enrolment. 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 embedded 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. We opened our Year 10 and Year 12, IGCSE and A Level curriculum, and started that year with 3800 children as we reached nearly full capacity.
Now we are at full capacity with 5706 children from FS1 – Year 13. We have completed two DSIB inspections and been rated Good by both with the most recent one also recognizing some Outstanding features.
We are fully BSO (British Schools Overseas) accredited gaining 5 Outstanding and 3 Good judgments and this allows us to offer the NQT, QTS, and PGCE programs through the TES Institute for our teachers. GEMS Founders School is a truly unique school and anyone who comes to work here has a unique opportunity to leave their mark. You will have the opportunity to grow, Flourish and Succeed at GFS.
