    Head of Mathematics

    Nikki Upsall

    I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BSc(Hons) Mathematics in 2001 and went on to train and teach in the same city. In 2007 my wife and I decided to move on to international teaching. We have spent the last 10 years working in Dubai at an international British school. There I led a Mathematics department through a period of growth, being recognised by the UAE government as one of the most successful schools in the country in the Mathematics PISA tests. In my final years in Dubai I moved on to whole school academic mentoring, pupil tracking and coordinating  Teaching and Learning initiatives for staff.

    I have been teaching on the IB diploma programme for 10 years at all levels of mathematics, although I specialise in Standard level. I have a wealth of experience with the internal assessment aspect of the course and look forward to sharing that with all of our year 12 and 13 students.

    I joined BSB in August 2015 as a Secondary Mathematics teacher.  I have a degree in Business and a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics both from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    I have been working in International Schools since 1996. I started teaching in Sao Paulo, Brazil and moved to Guangzhou, China in 2003 and in 2004 I moved to teach in England. In 2007 I went back to teach in Sao Paulo, Brazil where I stayed till 2011.  Since then I have been working in Saudi Arabia.

    After four years in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, my wife and I decided to move and since we left Guangzhou in 2004 it has always been our wish to go back and live in China. We are very excited to be part of BSB.
