Vision, Mission and Values

At GEMS World Academy – Abu Dhabi, we aim to unlock the potential of every child through a ‘world of pathways’ that recognises the uniqueness of each learner. Supported by a state-of-the-art campus and world-class facilities, and delivered by world-class education leaders and teachers, our mission is to be among the very best schools in Abu Dhabi, the UAE and globally.

Our philosophy

  • We believe the diversity of our student body provides the foundation for developing involved global citizens equipped with the skills and understanding to thrive in a rapidly changing world
  • We believe that quality education builds bridges between school and home, centred on mutual trust, open communication and shared goals
  • Our approach is guided by a respect for each child’s uniqueness – we recognise that every student learns differently and that it is our duty to engage and inspire them
  • Every day, we provide students with inquiry-based experiences and environments that shape and inspire learning and facilitate success for all
  • Students build knowledge and skills through the progressive structure of the National Curriculum for England and its learner outcomes
  • Our students are encouraged to explore their interests and strengths and to develop their own distinct, individual personalities and to expand their perspectives
  • Our students have the opportunity to excel as individuals, while learning to work collaboratively as part of a team

We support and realise our philosophy through:

  • High standards of achievement and performance
