David Craggs

Head of Secondary School

As Vice Principal and Head of Secondary at GEMS Cambridge International School – Abu Dhabi I have worked for GEMS for over 4 years. I have 19 years’ experience in education and was previously Senior Deputy Headteacher in one of the largest schools in Europe.  I spent 13 years working for my previous organisation gaining promotion from teacher of ICT to Senior Deputy Headteacher. During my time as Head of ICT for my previous employer, I fully developed a cross-site Virtual Learning Platform, as well as being Management Information System advisor for the multi academy trust. I have successfully delivered year on year record results for both GCSE and A-Level and I was responsible for examination analysis and timetabling in role as Senior Deputy Headteacher for six academic years. Having joined GEMS Cambridge as Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for timetabling and assessment, I gained promotion within six months to Head of Secondary. I have overseen significant improvement within the secondary phase at GEMS Cambridge International School – Abu Dhabi. Throughout my career, I have focused on the success of learners, through the integration of technology to support learning.  My passion in this role is working with students, staff and parents to ensure that all learners have the opportunity to access world-class education. This encompasses respect for themselves, respect for others and respect for their lifelong learning.
