A warm welcome from our Head of School
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to GEMS Cambridge International School Nairobi (CIN), where we offer a first class National Curriculum of England education. Our vision is to equip our students with the knowledge, skills, innovation and confidence to enjoy successful lives in school and beyond.
I first came to Kenya in 1996 from Scotland and since then have had a long and illustrious career, teaching different schools in East Africa. Following the early days at Premier Academy, came the move to Hillcrest preparatory and then went on to be the Deputy Head at Braeburn School. I had a 2 year stay at Porto British School in Portugal, before moving back to Nairobi as the Head Teacher of Braeburn school. At Braeburn, I rose through the ranks to become Executive Head and eventually went on to start the Braeburn school in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania. In 2016 a very fine opportunity to lead GEMS-CIN came my way. It was a role that was could not be denied! We have a shared vision to bring about positive change to enhance the learning experience of each student. CIN is on the way to becoming a champion of academic, sporting, and arts prowess.
GEMS-CIN is a vibrant school, with focused teachers who really care and a committed parent body too. A student that comes to our School will find that they can develop academically, artistically, in sports and socially. They learn to be confident and to fulfil their aspirations.
The teaching faculty at GEMS- CIN holds a belief that children should be encouraged to explore their interests, identify their talents in a holistic manner. We hold a particular strong commitment to ensuring access to technology that will stimulate innovation in our students. These ambitions are provided by the support of our highly experienced teachers, who always provide a stimulating learning environment. Our aim is to guide, challenge, appreciate and respect the ‘Gems’ that are given into our care.
Please explore further what GEMS -CIN will offer your child and feel free to contact me to discuss any questions you may have or arrange an appointment to visit the school.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school soon.
Chief Executive Principal
