The mark of a quality education
Every parent wants the very best for their child. The best opportunities, the best experiences and the very best education. But how can you be sure that the teaching your child receives is of the highest quality? That's where external accreditation comes in...
Our international schools teach a diverse range of curricula to students at every stage of their educational journey. To give you confidence in our expertise in every syllabus at every level, we'd like to talk to you about the international accreditations and affiliations we have to our name.
We're very proud of the accreditations GEMS schools have achieved. Each accreditation and affiliation is a seal of approval from the best international educational bodies. From AQA international accreditation to NCA accreditation and central board of secondary education affiliation; our awards and relationships speak volumes about the high standard of education available through our schools.
You can take a look at a number of our accreditations from global bodies below.
What does accreditation really mean?
So what do all these acronyms and accreditations really mean for your child's experience in the classroom?
School accreditation is an important type of quality assurance. From government organisations to exam boards, expert external bodies regularly evaluate the performance of schools teaching in their country or teaching their syllabus. An accreditation is a clear indication that their own, internal standards are being met. This means you and your child can be confident that they're receiving an education which is of the highest standard.
Moving schools & accreditation
The reassurance that your child is receiving the best possible education is important wherever you travel. But for families who are transferring schools or moving countries, looking closely at accreditation is even more essential.
With little local knowledge to rely upon, the reputation and quality of prospective schools must be proven with official recognition from the right bodies. Look for accreditation or affiliation with the body responsible for your child's syllabus, check for recognition from any relevant exam boards and make sure your prospective school has approval from their national government educational organisation.
At GEMS, we run great schools that set a benchmark for quality education. We know this because all GEMS Schools are accredited and/or affiliated to internationally acclaimed education organisations. It’s the reassurance any family wants for their child’s future. Explore our awards above or talk to our team for more information.
