Middle School Curriculum at WIS
As our students move into the Middle School at GEMS Wellington International School, they start to access subject specialists in every area of their learning. This transitional period is an incredibly important part in our students’ learning journey, which is why we offer a holistic curriculum that promotes a love of learning.

As our students move into the Middle School at GEMS Wellington International School, they start to access subject specialists in every area of their learning. This transitional period is an incredibly important part in our students’ learning journey, which is why we offer a holistic curriculum that promotes a love of learning. We ensure that we actively engage our students in independent study, cross-curricular development and effective collaboration with one another, to help them reach their true potential in an enjoyable and inspirational way. We believe that the students in our Middle School need this specialist teaching in order to feel appropriately challenged and we have found that this motivates them to achieve great things.
Our Pastoral Programme affiliates every student with one of our 4 Houses, which provides them with a sense of identity, promoting the family-feel nature that resonates throughout the whole of WIS. This programme ensures that we have the well-being of our students at the forefront of everything that we do, as they receive daily pastoral support from their form tutors, as well as regular support from their Head of House and Deputy Head of House.
Both the Specialist Teaching Model and the Pastoral Programme prepares the students in the Middle School well for their transition into the Upper School.

Our Student Stories
At WIS our personalised learning takes many different forms and allows us to give the children a rich curriculum filled with opportunities.
In March 2020 the KHDA moved all schools into ‘Distance Learning’ mode. This took schools into unknown territory and perhaps an initial sense of panic.
As one of the High-Performance Learning ‘Values, Attitudes and Attributes (VAAs), ‘Hardwork’ is deeply rooted in our learning culture. A trait that is widely considered to be inherently personality based, we firmly believe it is a characteristic that can be taught, developed and ultimately mastered to ensure that students are the drivers of their own success, knowing that dedication to a skill, craft or discipline can bring about the most amazing rewards and accolades.
