Welcome message from the Principal

Mr. Anthony Cashin

As newly appointed Principal at GEMS Metropole School, I am thrilled to join the vibrant GEMS community. An Australian, with 30 years in educational leadership across six countries and the past five years in the UAE, I possess a true appreciation of cultural diversity and an understanding of Emirati culture and heritage. 

Established in September 2014, GEMS Metropole has grown rapidly in reputation and population. It boasts a technology-rich, safe and enthusiastic learning environment in a media-rich location. GEMS Metropole’s modern design offers stimulating, flexible, open-plan learning environments that lend themselves to creativity, innovation, and collaboration. Digital media and science laboratories, specialist music and art rooms and a variety of fully equipped sports facilities cater to the holistic educational experience of our students.

Whilst upholding the highest academic standards, our highly qualified staff challenge students to question, inquire and develop the skills to become independent future-ready learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to our world.

I look forward to sharing in your children’s academic journey.

Principal and CEO, GEMS Metropole School - Motor City
