It is a privilege and honour to welcome you to Al Ghaf Private School. GPS is a school with a difference. We are a boutique school that is family-centred and committed to providing personalised education of the highest quality to each one of our young learners from FS 1 – Year 6. 

We believe that all children are special whatever their ability or ethnicity and take pride in being an inclusive international school. We follow the British curriculum that is enhanced with International Primary Curriculum and take every opportunity to explore the UAE culture and values to ensure that all our students fully appreciate living in Dubai.

At GPS, we are committed to fostering a learning environment where compassion, curiosity, courage, perseverance, positivity, and principles are not just words, but guiding principles that shape every aspect of our community. With a focus on holistic education, character development, and academic excellence, we strive to empower students to become compassionate leaders, lifelong learners, and resilient individuals who make a positive impact on the world around them.
At the core of our educational philosophy is a commitment to academic excellence. Our rigorous curriculum is designed to ignite curiosity, stimulate critical thinking, and foster a love for learning in our students. We believe that education is a collaborative endeavour that extends beyond the classroom walls. We therefore actively engage parents, caregivers, and the wider community in our mission to provide a supportive and enriching learning environment for all our students.

So, whether you're a prospective student, parent, educator, or community member, we invite you to join us on this journey of discovery, growth, and transformation at GPS. Together, we can inspire compassion, nurture curiosity, cultivate courage, foster perseverance, spread positivity, and uphold principles of integrity and respect, creating a brighter future for all.
