Stephen Farish

Head of Middle School

I have over ten years of educational experience, having started my career as a PE teacher in the UK. I moved to the United Arab Emirates 7 years ago as a Head of PE and soon became an Assistant Vice-Principal at a British School in Abu Dhabi before joining GEMS Wellington International as the Head of the Middle School in August 2018. I completed my PGCE at Durham University and have a Masters in Educational Leadership and Management from the University of Nottingham.

My main passion is to see the continuous development of children throughout their educational journey. The position of Head of Middle School has direct responsibility for those journeys as I help students transition from their initial stages of learning in the Lower School into the Upper School, where they hone their skills for the future.

“I am delighted to be able to work with an ‘Outstanding’ team of staff to provide the children of Dubai with the best opportunities for tomorrow’s world!”
