Local Advisory Board

GEMS Cambridge School has a strong Local Advisory Board. GEMS remain the owners and corporate governors of the school. The Local Advisory Board is actively involved in all aspects of school life. Its aim is to be “a critical friend”, which can uphold the school’s vision and values, advise and support the school on matters of strategy and policy and hold the school’s leadership accountable for standards and performance. The Local Advisory Board meets frequently throughout the academic year. The Local Advisory Board is made up of parents; members of the Senior Leadership team from within the school as well as Principals from neighboring GEMS schools; members of GEMS Corporate Office and esteemed members of the Sharjah community. They all willingly give up their skills, experience and time for free in order to help and support the school. Members come from a range of backgrounds and professions including teaching, the public and business sector. This wealth of experience brings a variety of expertise to ensure GEMS Cambridge School is best placed to achieve its potential.
