Welcome Message From The Principal

Mr. Matthew Tompkins

Welcome to GEMS FirstPoint School, where we are passionate about maximising every learner’s potential and celebrating the greatness in each of our students. Our school is committed to developing the leaders of tomorrow, providing them with the skills, confidence and resilience essential for success in the 21st century.

We know that happy children make the best learners. Accordingly, FirstPoint offers a welcoming, nurturing and friendly environment where learners are encouraged to be inquisitive and where they can grow not just academically, but also socially. Our school is family-orientated and prides itself on the individualised journey we provide for our learners. In this way, we enable our students to excel in an ever-changing world.

At FirstPoint, we provide an education that is well-rounded, with every moment part of an exciting voyage bursting with exploration and discovery. Pupils, parents and teachers work together as a team to co-construct a bespoke pathway for each learner. We create exceptional learning opportunities for all members of our school family, developing innovative leaders who are globally aware. We are also proud to be the GEMS Centre of Excellence for Digital Futures, enabling us to prepare learners for a future that reflects their highest aspirations.

Ethos and Core Values

We combine our core values with cutting edge & innovative teaching, set in well-resourced and vibrant learning environments.


I strongly encourage you to visit our school to see all of the above in action. Tours can be arranged at a time to suit you and will give you the opportunity to speak to our teachers, view our facilities and experience first-hand the school’s unique environment and culture.

I look forward to welcoming you to GEMS FirstPoint School.

Matthew Tompkins
