Mr Robin Montgomery

Assistant Principal Primary - Personal Development, Welfare & Behaviour

Robin joined GEMS World Academy - Dubai in 2021, relinquishing his Senior Leadership Team position at King's College School in Chengdu, China. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from St Mary's University, UK. Driven by his passion for education, Robin embarked on his professional journey in a UK inner-city school in Cheam, where he quickly became Head of Year. Subsequently, he assumed the roles of Director of Sport and Head House at Rivers Academy West London. Continuing his pursuit of leadership and growth, Robin transitioned to Wetherby, a prominent Central London school. Here, he assumed dual responsibilities as Assistant Headteacher for Operations and Head of Middle School while completing his National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership. This experience provided him with invaluable opportunities to collaborate with diverse age groups and cater to varying educational needs, while simultaneously leading whole-school initiatives and supporting early-career teachers. 


Drawn to the international community and International Baccalaureate curriculum offered by GEMS World Academy – Dubai, Robin moved over initially as Director of Sport and enrichment. He considers himself fortunate to be part of the exceptional leadership team at GEMS World Academy - Dubai, where he receives unwavering support for his professional growth. Having spent two years in the UAE, Robin now considers it his home and eagerly anticipates working alongside the senior leadership team to propel GEMS World Academy - Dubai towards an "Outstanding" rating.
