About us

Welcome to GEMS Winchester School - Dubai

The GEMS Winchester School – Dubai opened in 2011 to address the increasing demand for school places in Dubai and in particular in GEMS schools. Located in the heart of old Dubai in Oud Metha, the school occupies a site of significant historical interest. It was here that over forty years ago GEMS opened its first purpose-built school – Our Own English School. When this school relocated to new premises, the Winchester School – Dubai was born and has successfully continued the GEMS legacy of quality education on the newly refurbished site.

Offering the National curriculum for England, the school currently provides places from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 12.

The ability to think globally and as an innovator has never been as important as it is today, and this may become even more vital for the next generation of graduates. As a GEMS Education school, we are part of a family of international schools embodying the following core values:

  • Pursuing Excellence
  • Growing by Learning
  • Learning Through Innovation
  • Global Citizenship
