What WSA says: GEMS Westminster Ras Al Khaimah is a relatively new school which is yet to reach Grade 12. The recent move into the new expansion on the campus plot has meant the school offers some really great facilities at impressive fees. Sadly, the school does not at present differentiate its results/university destinations from the other GEMS schools, making it difficult to measure performance against other schools in the region.

Sports and Extracurricular Activities: School teams and clubs are established in basketball, football, cricket, badminton, table tennis, and athletics, ecology, Arabic and EAL (English as Additional Language). activities are provided for Grades 1-11, and offered each term. Students have the opportunity to sign-up for activities across a broad range of subjects, including sports, information technology, performing arts, visual arts, music, dance, EAL (English as Additional Language), cooking, junk modelling, public speaking, magazine and newspaper. The lessons are offered once a week, for 45 minutes after school.
