- Renamed as the Wellington Academy Silicon Oasis - see that page for updated information.
- See also the Oasis School in Dubai - not related to the GEMS school, and in Jumeirah, not Silicon Oasis.
09 May 2009
- The Silicon Oasis school was renamed as Wellington International School (WIS-DSO?) then GEMS Wellington Academy, perhaps because there's already a Wellington International School in Al Barsha. Expected opening date September 2009.
27 October 2008
- Email from GEMS Education says the GEMS Silicon Oasis school is an England National Curriculum school only, implying no IB after all (although it didn't state that exactly).
14 August 2007
- New school announced for Dubai Silicon Oasis, expected opening in September 2008. Full name is (or may be) GEMS DSO Smart School.
- Partnership between Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) and GEMS.

- DSOSS will have an emphasis on science and technology with the UK National Curriculum.
- Information from 14 August 2007 press release, no website or further information found yet.
