Learning principles

This curriculum develops specific skills and competencies, but also emphasises critical thinking, enquiry, creativity, planning and other skills needed to meet the challenges of a changing world. The curriculum also provides a regular programme of student assessment and evaluation to ensure that students are working towards levels of attainment appropriate to their age and capability. It’s not all work and no play at the GEMS Wellington Academy – Al Khail. We like to use these facilities to the full to help instil the confidence children of every age need to fulfil their potential. With such a wide range of creative, musical and physical activities on offer, every child will discover something they’ll love!

Admission and language criteria

In most cases the Senior Leadership Team reads the last 2 school and nursery reports and approves an offer for a place from these documents. Where more information is needed beyond the reports, children may be invited in for a play assessment in FS 1 and 2 with the focus on social confidence, communication skills and English language ability. Children in Years 1-10 may be invited to sit a brief test with a focus on reading, writing and mathematics. In KS3 the school uses a range of assessment methodologies including current school reports, National Curriculum Assessments and Cognitive Ability Tests.
