Hear what our parents have to say
We have 3 children at WSO, in year 10, year 5 and year 3. We have been at the academy since it opened in 2011 and have seen it grow and excel to the amazing school it is today. It provides an exceptional level of education but also places a great deal of emphasis on child well-being and character building supporting our children to excel both academically and socially. The leadership team work well with the parent community to create a family feeling and a great working partnership.
Parent of year 10, year 5 and year 3 students
Moving to Dubai back in 2011 our priority was finding a reputable British Curriculum school for our two sons to settle into fast. Having previously visited the GEMS Wellington Academy on Sheikh Zayed Road we knew that the newly opened facility in Silicon Oasis had the potential to be even better when we looked around the school in the September of that year and we are very pleased to say that this has certainly been true for us. We believe that the fantastic facilities, wide range of pathways and enrichment opportunities are some of the best in Dubai...
