Welcome to the GEMS Learning Trust, a not-for-profit charity operating in London and the South of England.

We opened our first primary academy in Twickenham in September 2015; our second opened in Didcot in September 2016 and our third, at Kingston, will open in 2019.

The GEMS Learning Trust has been established to offer all children in our academies a first-class education. We have high expectations of everyone in our school community and we challenge all our children to succeed while supporting them every step of the way.  We believe that early mastery of the core basics is essential and teach phonics, reading, writing and mathematics on a daily basis.

We believe in teaching children to be creative, independent problem-solvers and immerse them in music, sports and arts to stimulate their love of learning. Our ultimate goal is to ensure children are happy and achieve their full, academic potential. We cannot do this alone and so fully expect parents to play active roles in their children’s school lives.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website. Any parents or prospective members of staff with further questions are warmly encouraged to contact us.
