Brendan Eveleigh

Head of Modern Foreign Languages

My name is Mr. Eveleigh and I have been teaching at Gems Metropole for eight years. I started my teaching career in Cardiff, before relocating to Dubai in 2015 with my wife. We are blessed to have two young daughters, and I am truly grateful to be part of the Gems Metropole Community. I am dedicated to my profession, and I am determined to inspire and motivate all learners to reach their academic, personal and social potential.


In 2005, I graduated from the University of Wales, Cardiff. I then I chose to study for the Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) qualification at Swansea Metropolitan University. In 2014, I chose to further my professional development by completing an additional Post Graduate course in Educational Practice at Cardiff University (PGCertEd). Furthermore, in 2023, I have successfully completed the National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL).


As both Head of Primary Student Leadership and Modern Foreign Languages (MFL), I am highly skilled in developing whole-school endeavours and overseeing departmental initiatives to ensure that pupils thrive during their time at Metropole. Working with an experienced and dedicated team, it is my role to ensure that all lessons motivate and engage pupils in order for them to learn their chosen language effectively.


In my spare time, I value keeping fit and healthy. Last year, I completed over one hundred 5km runs; this ongoing commitment ensures that I remain ‘fresh and focused’ in my role. I shall look forward to supporting your child as they continue upon their learning journey this year.
