The first Dubai based school in the Top 5, and the second most popular school in the UAE in terms of views, Wellington International is also the second GEMs Education School to make it into the Top 5 - no small feat. It is the first IB Diploma based school on the list.
GEMs Wellington International is a WSA Good School, currently rated an Outstanding school by the KHDA, with the academics to back up those ratings - certainly for pre-16 education. In 2013, 93% of its students achieved 5 x A* – C and 89% achieved 5 x A* – C including English and Maths at IGCSE.
Slightly less impressive are the school's IB results, although 96% of its post-16 students were awarded the IB Diploma, with results 18% above the World IB Average (WIS fails however to give the average score). This was a step up from 2012 when 80% of the school’s students passed the IB Diploma, and achieved results 2% above the IB Average of 66.2%.
These results are not a one off. The KHDA notes the school has “established record of students’ outstanding academic progress," all the more impressive as intake is not academically selective. Inspectors also note students’ personal and social development (“Outstanding”); confident, high quality teaching; curriculum quality and design (“Outstanding”); the school’s protection and support for its students, and its Outstanding leadership and management.
