Michelle Motley

Head of Primary

I am very excited to be introducing myself to you all as Head of Primary. My name is Michelle Motley and I am from the UK. I have over 22 years of teaching experience in Primary School education and have worked in London and Australia. I have led on Inclusion and EAL which is a passion of mine.

I have been a Headteacher for over 7 years in a multicultural school and bring a wealth of experience that I believe will be an asset to Gems Cambridge Private International School. I have high standards and expectations for all and will always put the children first. I adhere to the GEMS philosophy of ensuring that children are prepared for the future. I believe this can be achieved through a rounded education; that enables children the independence to think for themselves, problem solve and take risks thus creating a culture that it is ok to make mistakes, as this is all part of the learning journey.

I look forward to working with you as parents, as being a parent myself of two boys age 11 and 13, I appreciate the importance of positive relationships and working in partnership together.
