Complete peace of mind, to and from school

At GEMS Uganda, we know how important it is for you to feel confident of your child’s safety and security. With a dedicated school bus service and access to fully-qualified medical personnel, you can be certain that your child is in safe hands at all times.

We operate a fleet of secure school buses in Kampala and Entebbe. The students travel with a trained bus monitor who is a member of staff, a driver and security personnel. All transport is regularly maintained for safety.

And, for extra peace of mind, there are speed management systems, along with GPS and tracking devices on board.

Note: This TERMLY fee is currently USD 550 round trip or USD 275 one-way. If you live in Luzira or its environs, the fee is lower.


We know that people learn most effectively when they are happy and healthy

It is our focus to ensure student health and wellness needs are attended to via a caring and holistic approach. Our goals are to empower students with appropriate knowledge, skills, and confidence within the realm of health and well-being, potentiating their ability to care for themselves and others around them.

We have a well-equipped medical dispensary under the control of a fully-qualified nurse. The dispensary is open full-time when the students are at the school. All cases of injury or illness receive immediate medical attention.

In the unlikely event that specialist medical aid is required, emergency transport is immediately available to take the student to the hospital.
