We welcome all Junior Primary grades 1 to 3 Learners to embrace our English First Language, LCE Learner-centered learning strategies.


Strong English language literacy and oral communication skills constitute key determinants on the Learner's eventual opportunity to enter the workforce, college, and university of their choice. We only employ teachers who possess such English language competency for the direct benefit of our Learners.

Learner Centered Education LCE... NO ONE IS LEFT OUT!

Gems Field operates on LCE principles, where the Learner is put at the center of the learning equation. Lessons take place in a classroom as in a group structure, however, the teachers are trained to individualize Learner needs and accommodate those who require alternate teaching methodology for their optimal learning experience. This inclusive, gender-neutral, and ability-based instructional approach ensures Learners from varying backgrounds advance to their highest potential for their age level.

Gems Field Private School's first phase was completed in 2015 with an administration office/staff reception room, 3 oversized classrooms with solar-electricity, running water, flush toilets, internet and telephone access. An industrial grade high 2.1 metre chain-link security fence surrounds the 1-hectare compound.

Hostel Services Available...

Gems Field has limited spaces available for those Learners who need to stay in a hostel. Only 50 metres away from the compound, a house is designated for student hostel services, operated and managed by Gems Field to ensure good, professional, and loving care is provided to your precious child. Please contact the school for more details on our hostel services.
