Wesgreen International School is a British Curriculum school that runs from KG1 through Grade 12. Having recently been acquired by GEMS Education Group, the school is now part of the GEMS family of schools.
The Story so Far
Wesgreen International School was founded in 1991 in Sharjah, and in the years since, it has grown to become one of the most popular schools in the area. The school is recognised by the Council of International Schools as an accredited school offering the UK curriculum to a standard that meets the Council's requirements.
The School is divided into three separate sections and operates a hybrid KG1 (equivalent of FS2) to Grade 12 (Year 13) structure. The Primary School accommodates students from KG1 to Grade 4. At the end of Grade 4, students move to either the Boys’ or Girls’ Secondary School. The Boys' and Girls' Secondary Schools cater for Grade 5 to Grade 13. The Administration Department is housed on the Secondary Boys’ Campus.
Students are represented by over 67 nationalities and the school's staff come from 41 countries.
The school's mission is focused on creating "opportunities for intellectual and personal growth in an inclusive environment," with values in "excellence, curiosity, respect, responsibility, humility and integrity." The students participate in a house system, being selected for one of four houses upon enrolment.
Wesgreen International School was taken over by GEMS Education in July 2017. The school group, the largest in the UAE, has begun to improve upon facilities, and to generally invest in the school.
What About the Facilities?
The facilities at the purpose built campus include computer labs, science labs, and a junior and senior school library. The school library has an "open access system," so that any child at any time can go in and check out a book.
There are separate playgrounds and courts for football, cricket, volleyball and tennis. Swimming is also integrated in the curriculum so that students can learn swimming fundamentals. There is also additional coaching for basketball, cricket and swimming in the evenings.
Fees for the school start at AED 21,420 for KG1 and rise to AED 47,465 for Grades 12 and 13. Fees are paid in three installments with the 1st installment also including "book fees" which start at AED 990 for KG and rise to AED 2,200 for Grades 12 and 13.
There are discounts on fees available for families and for those who pay their fees in full.
