About the School

GEMS Wellington School is a premium school offering the National Curriculum for England from the ages of 3 – 18. The school opened in 2015 and has undergone rapid growth during this time, making it one of the leading schools offering an authentic British style education in Qatar. We are ambitious for all our students and staff, and aspire for excellence in all we do. Our strong community ethos and culture is built around a clear set of traditional values and behaviours, including integrity, honesty, respect, empathy and hard work, in which we expect every member of our community to exhibit. At WSQ we believe that by providing a supportive and challenging learning environment alongside high quality teaching, every student should thrive and succeed. They should have the opportunity to explore their strengths and interests whether that is in academics, sports, performing arts or more. Through this approach our aim is to ensure that when students leave WSQ they are well prepared for the rapidly changing world, not only with the desired qualifications but also with a ‘can do’ mindset, a love of learning and the resilience to effectively overcome future challenges.

This ambition is underpinned and reinforced by the fact that we have recently adopted the High Performance Learning (HPL) philosophy with the aim of becoming a ‘World Class HPL’ School.
