Head of English and Performing Arts

GEMS Modern Academy - KochiIndia

About the School

Nestled in 8.3 acres of lush greenery, GEMS Modern Academy, Kochi is a new and quickly growing International school providing a world class education supported by outstanding facilities. We currently have 450 students from Pre KG to Grade 9 and will be opening for Grade 10 and 11 next academic year, hopefully growing to 650 students across school.

We offer exciting opportunities with our International curriculum, IB PYP in KG and Primary leading to IGCSE and A levels in the Senior School, in highly stimulating learning environments with the best of international practices, all underpinned by the GEMS Core Values.

Set on a magnificent estuary, serene Kochi has been drawing traders, explorers and travelers to its shores for over 600 years. Recently featured in the Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2020, nowhere else in India could you find such an intriguing mix: giant Chinese fishing nets, a 450-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese- and Dutch-era houses and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. The result is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal and Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast.
