Valerie Thompson

Principal/CEO WSS

I joined GEMS in 1990, as a class teacher at The Cambridge High School in Sharjah (before it closed due to the first Gulf war).  Following a move to CIS-Dubai and several leadership roles, in June 2006 I moved to AKNS to be the Principal. Now I am blessed with the role of founding Principal of GEMS Westminster School-Sharjah.

My journey with GEMS, and to be instrumental in the preparation for life of a generation of children, has been a privilege.  GEMS has offered me a multitude of opportunities to develop personally and professionally, and I have been proud to be part of its continuous growth!
