Welcome Message from the Principal

Mr. Stephen Brecken

On behalf of everyone at GEMS Cambridge International School – Dubai (CIS), let me extend a very warm welcome to our school and wonderful community.

At CIS, we offer Foundation Stage all the way up to Year 13, delivering the National Curriculum for England (NCfE) including a range of IGCSE, AS-level, A-level and BTEC qualifications. Our school is long established and has a strong track record of outstanding academic results.

Our priority is to provide a safe, secure and engaging learning environment – one that is inclusive, ambitious and challenging. Our amazing students come from all corners of the world, and they thrive as active contributors to our rich, vibrant and diverse school community.

We believe in creating a school culture where our parents and students know us, like us and, most importantly, trust us. Our teachers know their students well and encourage each of them to reach their full potential and achieve their aspirations. The positive relationships we build with our parents are a key part of the home-school dynamic, which has the needs of every student at its core.

Our teachers are highly dedicated and put every child at the heart of everything they do. Our staff are deeply passionate about providing high-quality education, both in and outside the classroom, to ensure our students have the best possible chances of success both while at school and in the future.

Our rich programme of extracurricular provision provides opportunity for students to develop and flourish in sports, arts, music and academia, where they can develop key life skills including confidence, teamwork and leadership. As a professional learning community, we are committed to providing challenging educational opportunities for our students every single day.

Life at CIS is a seamless journey for all our students and the valuable experiences they gain will have a lasting impact. At our core is a focus on high performance in all areas. We are a High Performance Learning World Class accredited school and our students learn in an environment where everyone matters, everyone succeeds and no one is left behind.

We are very proud of our school and especially proud of our amazing students. Please feel free to visit us at any time and see our wonderful school for yourself. We would be delighted to meet you and welcome you into the Cambridge and GEMS family.
