I'm not sure if this is available natively over GPO but you are able to use PowerShell cmd-let for that (Remove-Appx-Package). So, you are able to create a logon script and use it with GPO to uninstall required modern UI apps from those Windows 8 machines.

Just atke a look at this page where you can find an example

Install the RSAT tools on a Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Update 1 PC and there are the group policy items that you can use to remove windows Metro Apps
