19 July 2013 review
  • An email flyer from GEMS about GCISAD said the school was open for enrolments from FS1-Year 8. Not clear if that means Years 9-13 are full, or classes will not be available for students in those groups. Oddly, the flyer referred readers to the website for the older GEMS Cambridge High School, not the new GEMS Cambridge International School.
  • Facilities include (or planned) learner swimming pool, 25 meter pool, cricket nets, indoor sports area and hall, ICT suites, wireless internet network, libraries, art and music rooms, design and technology rooms.
26 November 2012 (notes from press release)
  • GEMS Cambridge International School Abu Dhabi (GEMS-CIS-AUH, GCISAD, or something) is a new GEMS school in the Bawabat Al Sharq (BAS) development in Baniyas City according to an agreement signed between GEMS Education and the Baniyas Investment and Development Company (BIDC), the investment subsidiary of Baniyas Sports Club.
  • Opening date expected to be September 2013. Might also be called GEMS Cambridge International School Baniyas (CISB, GCISB).
  • Location is near the new BAS or Baniyas Mall (under construction)?
  • Founding Principal Designate is Keith Miller? Is or was Principal at GEMS Wellington International School in Dubai?
  • School will offer a UK curriculum from kindergarten to Year 13, capacity will be 3,400 students.
  • GEMS-CIS-AUH is different from the already established GEMS Cambridge High School Abu Dhabi in Mussafah.
