Welcome message from the Principal

Dr. Karon Buck

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Principal and CEO of GEMS Winchester School (WSA). It is a privilege to have been appointed and entrusted with the job of leading such a fantastic school. I am determined WSA builds on its legacy and continues to flourish and maintain its position at the heart of our community.

Education serves many purposes, one of which is to provide children and young adults with the knowledge and skills that will lead to them fulfilling all of their ambitions. Education is about people, aspirations and the ability to achieve. Our school has developed a set of core values which will continue to underpin all the work we do. I know how vital working in partnership with parents really is in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience; I strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand to ensure each child’s excellent progress.
We have a great team at GEMS Winchester School, which is committed to ensuring that your child is given every opportunity to learn and develop. Our aim is to ensure that we provide the best possible standards of learning and teaching to allow your child to succeed. We believe in developing the whole child, with a focus on academic achievement and personal development. We want to offer our students opportunities that will give them a competitive edge when seeking places in higher education and the world of work.

GEMS Winchester School has a caring family atmosphere underpinned by the GEMS core values and the local traditions and customs of the UAE.

I look forward to working with you over the coming weeks, months and years as we all strive to be the best we can.

I have no doubt that your child will have a very happy and fulfilling time learning at GEMS Winchester School, Abu Dhabi.

Kind regards,

Dr. Karon Buck
