The School

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 two main pillars that are being embedding at GFS: Languages and Mindfulness. As a British international school with over 90 nationalities, it is important that we value all our languages and we use this as a catalyst to also 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. GEMS Founders School is a truly unique school and anyone who comes to work here has a unique opportunity to leave their mark. To learn more about our world class school, please visit our website
