GEMS Values

We aim to be good citizens who are:

  1. Respectful and inclusive, celebrating diversity
  2. Aspirational and inspirational in pursuit of excellence
  3. Committed to the well-being of people and of the environment
  4. Open-minded, creative, resilient and reflective

These values define who we are – the beliefs that guide our actions and behaviours. They influence the way the whole GEMS community works with each other and they are the foundation of the quality of a GEMS education.
