Ruth Dunn

Head of Year 12 & CAS/SL Coordinator 

This is my fourth year here at GEMS Wellington International School.  I started my teaching career in Scotland, teaching in schools in Central Scotland.  After an 18 year career working in banking in a variety of roles; including Business Relationship Manager, Marketing Manager and Business Development Manager.  I also owned and ran two businesses of my own prior to retraining as a Teacher. I moved to Dubai in August 2020 with my family and joined WIS as a Business & Economics Teacher.  During my time at WIS, I was Head of Business and also Head of Year 11 last year. 

I am passionate about the pastoral care and wellbeing of our students and this is why I am excited to be moving forward with my students.  I firmly believe that the student is at the centre of everything and the community around them needs to work together in partnership to benefit their experiences and opportunities.  Since joining WIS I have worked hard to support students, parents and staff and I look forward to continuing this with Year 12, in what is a very important and exciting year for the students starting their Sixth Form Journey.
