    I am immensely proud to be the serving Principal of The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun. There is a fantastic sense of community at our school and from the moment you enter our school, we work very hard to make sure you feel part of something special. Having worked previously as Head of Primary at The British School of Guangzhou, also a Nord Anglia Education school, I know that sense of belonging expands to being part of a global community.

    Zoe Hubbard

    I qualified as a teacher in 2003. Prior to moving to Beijing in 2013, I taught in schools in both London and Brighton. In Brighton I co-ordinated Maths and Assessment and was KS2 Leader. During my final year, I took on the role of Acting Deputy Head. In 2012 I undertook the Primary Maths Specialist Teacher Programme at Brighton University which allowed me to explore in more depth the ways in which children learn and how a creative Maths curriculum can be developed in primary schools.
