Welcome to Windrose Academy
Windrose Academy, our new primary school opened in Cairo on September this year, is pleased to announce that GEMS Education has been appointed to manage all aspects of our new school.
GEMS Education is an international K – 12 education Company. Based in Dubai, the company’s services are built on over 50 years experience, in operating its own world class education facilities through its global network of International schools. Under the management of GEMS Education, Windrose Academy will become part of ‘GEMS Global Network of Schools’ meaning students, staff and parents will be able to access GEMS global resources via its international schools network.
Windrose Academy will benefit from GEMS team of world renowned educators to ensure it delivers global best practice in the field of education. These include leaders who have excelled in education reform, curriculum development and teaching and learning practices. Windrose will provide an outstanding international curriculum to Egyptian and expatriate families alike. GEMS students have attended 590 universities in 41 countries.
Windrose Academy offers the National Curriculum for England initially to Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 students in September 2013. This will rapidly be expanded each year to eventually include students in Year 13. The National Curriculum will form the basis of the programme of study, however, there will be a strong reflection of local culture, history and geography. Beyond the classroom we will strive to prepare our pupils to be the leaders of tomorrow through the promotion of the GEMS four core values of World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership and Forward Thinking.
Windrose Academy is a purpose-built establishment designed for learning in a modern setting. Our close proximity to the major communication networks allows for rapid transfer from the city.
Initially we will begin operation with Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 - Year 5 classes who will have access to new, modern facilities. Every classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, computer and learning materials in order to help every child on their learning journey. The Foundation Stage 1 classrooms have easy access to the outdoor environment which will allow the children to select their own way of learning as they begin their school careers.
Windrose Academy is located in Investment Area, Exit to Ain Sokhna Road, Maadi, Cairo
