Ms Hillary Hinchliff -Principal

Welcome to GEMS Modern Academy Kochi where you will find a World of Difference.

Come and experience our unique, dynamic approach to teaching and learning, a Curriculum designed for the future delivered by Well Qualified Staff, many of whom are from the UK or have had International experience.

Come and visit and you will discover World Class Facilities that support our unique approach to education, enabling us to develop and inspire our students to achieve success in all areas and to become masters of their own learning and personal development.

Come and meet our well behaved, motivated learners. Our Global Leaders of the Future. See how they develop the skills needed to become a high performing and lifelong learners and leaders.

My motto throughout my life has been Aim High, Dream Big!

I am a creative, resilient and passionate school leader with over 30 years of experience in the UK and the Middle East. Prior to taking up the post of Principal at GMA Kochi in May 2019 I was Head of Primary at British School Muscat, an Outstanding and multi Award Winning School in Oman.

I have improved student outcomes in all of my schools through reinventing the curriculum, building a highly skilled workforce and designing innovative learning environments. I have a passion for curriculum design and have implemented systematic and pedagogical change in each school I have led.

Through developing excellent partnerships with parents and with my colleagues in GEMS schools across the world I aim to ensure that we provide the best school experience for every child in our care.

I look forward to meeting you personally.

Best wishes,

Hillary Hinchliff
