Welcome message from the Principal

Mr. David Wade

Mr. David Wade

Welcome to GEMS Winchester School, Fujairah (WSF). I am delighted to introduce GEMS Education’s exciting, state-of-the-art school which opened its doors for the first time in 2016. This long awaited addition to the internationally acclaimed GEMS family brings the strongest educational values and highest expectations of achievement for all our students. Our school offers a modern and stimulating learning environment in which our young learners can develop and grow, supported by a dedicated and professional team of excellent teachers. Building on the exceptional strengths of a British curriculum, our students discover a world of opportunities to extend their knowledge, develop their skills and engender a life-long thirst for learning. Our passion is learning and teaching and it is our privilege to provide your child with the very best education.

We are preparing our children for membership of a global community in which those who are given the right start, through a first class education, will be able to benefit from all the international opportunities open to them. Ours is a changing world in which technology plays an increasingly significant role and at GEMS Winchester School, Fujairah our children will be given the tools to unlock their abilities and fulfil their unique potential; children are our greatest asset and the WSF promise is to invest in each and every one of them.

Our professional educators work closely with our students to encourage the development of their curiosity, nurture their creativity and harness their imagination. We also work with you, the parents, to ensure our partnership provides the essential support for our children to thrive. Underpinning this will be GEMS Education’s powerful values: leading through innovation, pursuing excellence, growing by learning, and global citizenship. Together we will unlock the power of education.

I am thrilled to be working with GEMS Education after successful leadership roles in the UK, Malaysia and for the last six years, Singapore. I have led schools with both Primary and Secondary sections for the last 17 years and consider myself a ‘whole-school’ educator. I therefore know how important it is to get the foundations of education right, whilst fully understanding the hopes and aspirations of students and families for life and study beyond our school. It is a privilege to have been appointed Principal of GEMS Winchester School, Fujairah, and I look forward to working with our parents and students as we continue on our journey to establish WSF as the school of choice in this region.
