Justine Saxton

Primary Onyx Head of House

My name is Justine Saxton and I am the Head of the Onyx House. This is my fourth year at GEMS WSO and I moved to Dubai with my husband and daughter in 2016. My daughter attends GEMS WSO and it has been a pleasure to watch her thrive from year 2 to year 5. I am originally from Manchester in the UK, where I was a class teacher for four years.

I feel incredibly privileged to be in a position where I can share in the celebrations and achievements of all of our students in a school that puts the well-being of our children at the forefront of their learning.

It is a pleasure to watch students embrace a love of learning and become future ready to achieve their goals. I like to spend my spare time with my family, making precious memories and I also like to travel. I am happy to call Dubai my home and I am proud to be a member of GEMS WSO. I look forward to many more years both at this school and as a resident of the UAE.
