The School:

GEMS Metropole School, located in Motor City in Dubai, opened its doors in September 2014 and has continued to flourish and grow in student number and stature. The school is now open to students from FS1 to Year 11 and will continue to grow to become a full FS to Year 13 through school of 4200 students offering the National Curriculum for England. In such a small time, the school has become well-known for their key areas of success through the development of Engineering in Education and Health and Wellbeing as well as piloting the Skills in Schools initiative. In addition, the school has well-equipped classrooms, a highly competitive sports department, digital media rooms, innovation laboratories, dedicated science labs, music, art rooms and libraries. Most recently the school has completely overhauled its digital strategy to lay the foundations to further its position as a leader in associated technologies in the region. Students from our Foundation Stage classes have access to attractive indoor and outdoor learning areas, high-quality Information Technology provision, and most recently a special weekly visit to the STEAM laboratory, dedicated to students in the Early Years. In the Primary section, with the use of 1:1 technologies, students and teachers in the Primary section use iPads and interactive whiteboards to enhance learning opportunities where appropriate. The Secondary school continues to develop and grow and has seen the LEAD and skills programme blossom supporting students to make informed decisions and develop their learning and leadership skills. A new focus of personalised pathways is supporting students in their preparation for life after school and their journey towards success. In conclusion, GEMS Metropole School has recently been awarded accreditation status with the British School Overseas (BSO) and is a member of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME). This allows both teachers and students alike to continue to grow and develop with the rich traditions of the National Curriculum offerings and align itself with ‘like schools’ across the region and overseas.
