Family Blake, 2 children at GWAS

My main worry about GEMS was having a 5-star facility and not having the 5-star staff to go with it. But I was wrong. The staff was, and still is, amazing. The girls come home excited, inspired by what they're learning at school.

I have never been so passionate for the subjects I am learning than since I attended GEMS.

Family M., 1 child at GWAS

My child is truly being challenged to be the best she can be. The high standards have pushed her to achieve academically and I can see she is being stretched and taught to think critically and creatively.
