About GEMS

Trusted for over 55 years and now a third generation education family, GEMS Education began in a single school room in Dubai. Today, we have the privilege of educating over 190,000 students from over 176 countries through GEMS owned and managed schools globally; over 270,000 students access resources through our services division; and we will impact 20 million by 2020 students through the initiatives of our Charity partner Varkey Foundation.

About the School

GEMS Wellington School is a premium school offering the National Curriculum for England from the ages of 3 – 18. The school opened in 2015 and has undergone rapid growth during this time, making it one of the leading schools offering an authentic British style education in Qatar. We are ambitious for all our students and staff, and aspire for excellence in all we do. Our strong community ethos and culture is built around a clear set of traditional values and behaviours, including integrity, honesty, respect, empathy and hard work, in which we expect every member of our community to exhibit. At WSQ we believe that by providing a supportive and challenging learning environment alongside high quality teaching, every student should thrive and succeed. They should have the opportunity to explore their strengths and interests whether that is in academics, sports, performing arts or more. Through this approach our aim is to ensure that when students leave WSQ they are well prepared for the rapidly changing world, not only with the desired qualifications but also with a ‘can do’ mindset, a love of learning and the resilience to effectively overcome future challenges.

This ambition is underpinned and reinforced by the fact that we have recently adopted the High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy with the aim of becoming a ‘World Class HPL’ School.


WSQ is part of the wider GEMS Wellington group of schools within the UAE, who bring with them a long and sustained history of delivering high quality education. The schools collaborate and work closely together to ensure the reach and impact of every initiative to improve student outcomes is maximized. Each school is unified by the core Wellington vision, fundamental to the ethos and fabric of what it means to be part of the GEMS Wellington family, whilst at the same time retaining their own unique characteristics. This partnership brings significant benefits for both our students and teachers including enhanced social, cultural and academic learning opportunities, sporting and performing arts events and access to a vast range of professional development pathways. The sharing of outstanding practice and dialogue amongst our highly talented leadership teams and teaching and learning community, constantly allows us to further raise standards in the pursuit of excellence. This is an exciting time to be part of the GEMS Wellington network.
