Mr. Sunny Varkey (Founder)

GEMS Education continues to inspire generations of learners from across the globe. Whose school successes give them the foundation to go on to achieve greatness and lead happy, fulfilling lives.

The quality of our schools and the education they provide is a reflection of the individuals that lead and support them. These are passionate, dedicated educators. They help change and improve the lives of thousands of children across the globe. We hold firm to our belief that all children have the right to a quality education.

We strongly believe that every child has talents and abilities that are as unique as their personality. We take pride in our inclusive ethos and in our commitment to helping every family find the right school for their child. GEMS is unique in the fact that we can offer choices that no other school operator can provide. We offer choice of curriculum, be it  American, English, Indian or IB curriculum. We are also proud to provide value-add programmes like GEMS RewardsUniConnect, Student Employment and GEMS X exclusively to GEMS families. We will continue to introduce new programmes in the future.

I would like to thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education and assure you that at GEMS Education we are committed to bringing out the best in your child.
