Meet the principal events at GEMS Wellington Academy in Dubai Silicon Oasis on Tue 18 Mar 2014 at 1800, and Sat 29 Mar 2014 from 1100-1200.

Location is near The Villa community in Dubailand, access off the Al Ain Rd heading in Al Ain direction, behind Skycourt Towers. If you see Dubai Outlet Mall you've gone too far.

KHDA information says the school name is GEMS The Villa School, unless it's just a reference to the location.

Some references to a GEMS First Point School in Abu Dhabi but no information from GEMS provided about a new school there with that name. At least, not so far.

First Point School will offer English curriculum to levels FS1 (KG1 or KG2) to Year 8 initially, eventually school will operate classes from FS1 to Year 13.

Is a new name for the GEMS Cambridge School announced for The Villa Dubailand in Sep 2012? Or a different school?

Fees discounted range AED 30,400-44,000 for 2014-2015 academic year. Registration application fee AED 1,000, entry or admission fee AED 2,500. Fee range is 38,000-65,000 according to KHDA information Mar 2014.

Teaching jobs for FS1 to Year 8 teachers and department heads - apply via GEMS Education website careers and employment section. Salary and benefits package not supplied, probably one of the better ones for a GEMS school. Closing date for applications 01 Apr 2014. Requirements are a teaching degree or certification, 4 years experience.

School contact information not provided or not available yet. For admission enquiries tel GEMS Education registration center, 600-567771 in the UAE (NOT a toll-free number). Or tel GEMS main office +971-4-3477770 (landline, not +971-4-43477770 - is incorrect).
