GEMS World Academy – Abu Dhabi

About Us

GEMS World Academy – Abu Dhabi has been providing the highest quality education since 2011. We moved to our brand-new, purpose-built campus on Al Reem Island in 2022, where we reimagined the learning experience for all children and expanded our provision to serve students from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 10. As we continue to grow, our ambition is to eventually become an all-through school, offering learners of all ages a world of pathways and qualifications up to Year 13.

We pride ourselves on fostering a warm and welcoming learning environment where all our students feel safe, happy and fulfilled. Our curriculum is built on the strong basis of the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum for England using the exciting inquiry based approach of the International Baccalaureate. Our education philosophy champions the diversity of our student body to develop fully involved global citizens who are ready to excel in a rapidly changing world. Our approach is guided by a respect for each child’s uniqueness, ensuring we provide a hyper-personalised and future-proofed education.
