The Gems network has expanded by introducing international schools in Libya and Jordan which will offer a holistic educational environment to suit the needs of the local communities. Both schools will commence all operations for the following academic year in September, 2005.

In Jordan, Gems has entered into an alliance with the Aqaba Development Corporation of Jordan to open Aqaba International School which will provide high quality international education in and around Aqaba Free Trade Zone. Hugh MacPherson, COO of Gems, said: “Gems is delighted to be chosen as ‘best in class’ education provider for this exciting and innovative project.”

This is first of many schools that Gems will manage in Jordan.

In addition, Gems have entered into an agreement with Sahara Development Corporation to manage the International School of Tripoli which has been designed to offer the best international education in Libya. The school will combine high standards of teaching and learning with premium facilities and activities for children to develop all aspects of their potential.

“This is a parallel step for Gems as we make our entry into Libya’s promising education industry,” said MacPherson.

“Gems has already established itself as a leading provider of quality education in the UK and Middle East. We are going a step further by providing world class education in Libya and Jordan. Our prime aim is to provide education to suit the requirements of the student-parent community in these countries by adhering to their culture and values,” added MacPherson.
