Welcome Message from the Principal

Mr Akram Tarik

Welcome to the GEMS Westminster School Ras Al Khaimah website.

GEMS Westminster RAK is an all through school that offers excellent learning from KG (FS2) through to Grade 12 (Year 13). In an all through school, parents can expect their child to transfer seamlessly from primary to secondary school. Our aim is to ensure that all our students develop as high achieving, confident and articulate young people whose education fully equips them to go on to university or the career of their choice.

It is very important to us that, whatever an individual student’s starting point is, they be given the opportunities needed to achieve their full potential. We also spend a great deal of time ensuring that our teachers are well prepared by continuously enhancing how they teach in order to provide pupils with contemporary teaching styles and holistic learning strategies that caters specifically to the needs of each unique pupil.

At GEMS Westminster RAK we are driven by a singular purpose, to put quality education within the reach of every student. Our school is based on an ethos of excellence by developing the knowledge, understanding, skills and values essential for self-directed and life-long learning.

One Tribe, One Family is a key area that we focus on with our staff, students and parents. We firmly believe that we count on our teachers, community, and families in helping us in raising the next generation. Every person in a community has a vested interest in seeing that every child is well cared for, well educated, and well raised. As One Tribe, One Family we have a vital part to play in developing lifelong learners in RAK, as do families and our local community; it does take a village to create the values and attitudes that allow our children to get the most out of their education.

We are very proud of the school we have built and the opportunities it offers our students. I look forward to working with our parents in the coming years to ensure the best for all our children at GEMS.
