Martin Boother

Assistant Headteacher of Secondary
 

My name is Mr. Martin Boother and I will be joining the GEMS Metropole family this academic year as Assistant Head with responsibility for the Sixth Form.  I am very excited to begin this new chapter in my life and career as I move with my family from Shanghai back to the UAE (where I spent three years as Associate Assistant Head in Abu Dhabi) to the amazing Emirate of Dubai.

In the past I have been fortunate to work with BTEC, IBDP and A-Level courses and I feel this experience will enable me to take the best of each and help your children (young adults) on the next step of their educational journey.  I am very much looking forward to working with the talented and dedicated staff already at Metropole and the phenomenal students and I would like to take this opportunity to let you all know that I will be working tirelessly to ensure each and every one of our students has the opportunity to excel.

I feel privileged to be joining the GEMS Metropole family and I know the significance of the word family.  I can clearly see that the Metropole community is a big family and indeed family is something very important to me as well.  I will be moving with my wife and two children (one of whom will be starting Year 12) and we all can’t wait to become a part of the Metropole community.  I have been working in education in a variety of countries and have held various positions including being part of the Secondary Leadership Team, Head of Department and much more. I aim to bring all of my experience together and work with and empower my new colleagues to continue the excellent work already being done.

Once in Dubai I would love the chance to meet with as many of you as possible and I will make sure the opportunity to come in and have a chat is organized as soon as it is possible.  Of course, once I start, I will be contactable via e-mail also and I am always happy to hear from parents, as a strong relationship between school and home is vital for our students’ success.
