Meet The Head of Upper School 

As Head of Upper School I’m delighted to lead our outstanding students in Years 10-13. Our GCSE and IB results are world class and I consider it an honour to oversee our students through their Upper School Journey. I am a School Site Visitor, Consultant for global IB Schools and have developed 4 courses of Global PD for the IB including the Leading the Learning workshops at Category 1 & 2, which will enable other school leaders to reflect upon and grow their own professional practice so that they too are able to deliver the high quality IB education of which I’m so proud to deliver at WIS.

Academically, the Upper School at GEMS Wellington international School, provides the next level in learning,  promoting an incredibly strong sense of independence, where students take pride in their achievements and are celebrated for their excellent commitment to continuous improvement. Year 10, the beginning of Key Stage 4, marks the start of a challenging and stimulating two year GCSE journey for many of our students, transitioning seamlessly from Year 9. With over 24 GCSE subjects on offer for students to choose from, we really do cater for the needs of every individual. From Art and Photography, to Economics and Astronomy, our desire is to provide the right pathway for every child. In order to ensure that everyone finds their own way, we offer personalised intervention for all in the form of our ‘WISdom’ Project, as well as the key and targeted support provided by our Achievement Centre.

Pastorally, as is the same in the Middle School, each student is a part of our incredibly strong House system, as well as a Tutor group. The Form Tutor becomes the main point of contact for our families, a member of staff that your child will see every morning for Registration. This member of staff will ensure that your child has everything they need for the day, as well as ensuring that your child’s well-being is placed at the heart of the school.
