Bernard M. Cox


Deputy Head of Secondary and Business Studies Teacher

I completed my BA degree in History and Economics at Queen Mary University London before going onto do a PGCE at West Sussex Institute of Education. I taught History, Politics and Economics at two large comprehensive schools in the UK before spending 5 years teaching at two international schools in Spain where I gained experience as a department and pastoral head. 

After joining the BIS in 2005 I was given the responsibility of Head of KS4 before being appointed as Deputy Head of Secondary in 2009.

I spend most of my free time with my wife and two young children but I also likes to find a little time to play sport, coach the U13 football team and watch Manchester United.

What the students say about me  

"Mr Cox is an enthusiastic and energetic teacher who makes learning interesting"

"Mr Cox creates a very positive atmosphere in lessons which makes studying easier and more enjoyable"

"Mr Cox is always willing to give me additional help and support outside of standard lesson time which I am very thankful for"
