Robert Jennings

Secondary Principal

Robert Jennings has over twenty successive years of education experience in Dubai in results-driven international education settings. Robert is very conscious of the wonderful opportunities available to our students to succeed at GWA, and works closely with the Senior Leadership Assistant Principals, middle management and teachers to ensure that wellbeing and academic performance stand at the centre of school life for our students. 

With extensive MYP and IBDP background as well as experience of inspection, authorisation, and accreditation contexts over years of education management, Robert is keen to ensure that best practices and standards are met through cohesive and supportive teamwork. He believes strongly that schools are essentially learning communities and that students benefit most when parents share our common purpose. Robert keenly believes that developing entrepreneurial and leadership opportunities for students, as well as enhancing international understanding, are  crucial for young people in this current context. 

Robert Jennings holds a BSc. (Hons) in Biochemistry from the University of Manchester, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from the University of Sunderland, and an MBA from the University of Melbourne.
