By QLNews

At GEMS Wellington School – Qatar (WSQ), we offer an engaging, personalised, and authentic British education following the National Curriculum for England. Our curriculum culminates in the highly sought-after GCSE and A-level qualifications, commended by all the top universities worldwide.

We believe in success for all and aim to be an “aspirational and globally minded community of happy, high performing learners who achieve personal and academic excellence”.

School-based Early Years education

A school-based Early Years setting gives children the very best start to their education journey. At GEMS Wellington School – Qatar, for example, we have expert Early Years practitioners who are well-versed in the UK curriculum and aim to ensure all children are happy and engaged. We put significant thought and consideration into ensuring every child learns and makes excellent progress towards their Early Learning Goals while, most importantly, enjoying their time with us in a safe and dynamic environment.

The key to high-quality education is to provide children with a fun and safe environment in which they are comfortable exploring. Our school also offers a seamless transition from early years to primary education and helps parents understand the key developmental milestones. Parents have the opportunity to work in partnership with our highly skilled practitioners, focusing on their own child’s development.

Preparing students for success in university and beyond

At GEMS Wellington School – Qatar, our Sixth Form programme is designed to offer students a comprehensive and dynamic educational experience that prepares them for university and beyond. We provide a broad range of A-level subjects, enabling students to tailor their studies to their interests and career aspirations. Our dedicated Sixth Form team offers personalised guidance and support, helping students make informed decisions about their academic and professional futures.

Furthermore, our focus on developing essential skills such as critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving ensures that our students are well-prepared for the challenges of higher education and their future careers. The supportive and stimulating environment of our Sixth Form empowers students to become confident, well-rounded individuals ready to make a positive impact on the world.

 

Prioritising teacher development

At WSQ, we place significant emphasis on the personalised development of our teachers. We have developed separate pathways for teachers depending on their level of experience, performance over time, and specific role. Over the past three years, our focus on improving teaching and learning has consistently resulted in outstanding student outcomes across the school. Notable examples include our GCSE and A-level results, which significantly surpass both the UK and international averages.

 

Offering hands-on and real-world experience

We have collaborated with several high-quality partners such as the Hilton Hotel Group and West End Stage, to bridge the gap between theory and practice, offering students unparalleled opportunities for hands-on training, site visits, and the invaluable sharing of expertise via industry experts and professionals.

The Hilton partnership for example, includes access for our Food Technology students to observe live cooking demonstrations by prominent chefs in the school's food technology lab, as well as tours of the hotel’s kitchens and restaurants. Our Business Studies students benefit from summer and winter training programmes and internships in the various hotel departments such as Sales & Marketing, Human Resources, Engineering and Finance.

Pioneering excellence and wellbeing

GEMS Wellington School – Qatar holds full CIS accreditation, reflecting its commitment to high-quality education and student wellbeing. Over the past few years, the school has integrated the CIS framework, leading to significant improvements and a student-focused learning environment. Staff also benefit from professional development and collaboration within the CIS network, ensuring ongoing improvement and educational excellence.
