    I am from Dublin originally but moved to England to study. I completed a BSc in Archaeology from the University of Bradford. My degree in archaeology focussed on applying scientific methods to problems in archaeology. Following my degree, I completed a physics enhancement course and a PGCE in Secondary Physics at the University of East London. I worked in London five years and gained experience as a Deputy Head of Science teaching a wide range of abilities at KS3 and KS4 including Triple Science Physics.

    Science Teacher

    Lucy Thompson

    I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Biological Science from the University of Leicester in the UK. It is here that I also gained my PGCE in 2010 before beginning my teaching career as a Science teacher at an Academy in Milton Keynes.

    I originally come from Durham, in the Northeast of England, however I spent much of my childhood in Germany.  In 2012 I returned there to take up teaching position in a British school near Hannover.  My love for travelling drove me to seek employment further afield and I join BSB from an International School in Malaysia where I have been teaching for the past 2 years.

    Head of Year 10, Science Teacher

    Michael Pinnock

    I am from London where I studied Chemistry at the University of Greenwich and have been teaching for 24 years, mainly in the North East of England after completing my B.Ed at The University of Sunderland. As well as being a Science Teacher I have held a variety of other roles including Head of Year, Head of House and Head of Department.

    Over the past few years I have attended courses and gained extensive CPD at the National Science Learning Centre. This culminated in me being joint guest speaker for the National STEM Centre annual conference, hosted at the Natural History Museum in London and was nominated for an Enthuse Secondary Science Leader Award. In July 2013, I was one of the guest speakers involved in the launch of the White Paper “The Future influence of STEM subjects” at the House of Commons. And most recently, June 2014, I was invited as a Leading Science Teacher 2012-13, back to the House of Commons to honour this year’s crop of Secondary Science Leaders.

    I believe that the opportunity to be involved in these unique experiences impacts dramatically on my everyday teaching and learning in school, as it allows me to stay up to date with recent research, national educational policy and teaching and learning techniques.

    I attended the University of Hertfordshire where I studied Molecular Biology and Genetics. After graduating I went on to work for 5 years as a Research and Development scientist for a large pharmaceutical company where my role was to develop cell based assays to test the effectiveness of monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins against specific cancer cell lines. During my time as a scientist I visited schools in the community giving students hands on experience with cutting edge biotechnology and it was while doing this that I made my decision to become a teacher.

    Deputy Head of Secondary, Science Teacher

    Rob Khan

    I am delighted to be joining The British School of Beijing, Shunyi in August 2017 as the Deputy Head of Secondary. From the information I have gathered about BSB, I strongly believe that we are aligned in the same philosophy of education and as such I am enthusiastically looking forward to joining a team of likeminded educators.

    In total I have 23 years’ experience as an educator both in the UK and overseas. I graduated from the University of Sussex with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Medicinal Chemistry. After this I obtained my PGCE in chemistry and secondary science from the University of Wolverhampton and then taught in the UK for 6 years before accepting a post with VSO in the Maldives for two years as a teacher trainer. I returned to the UK for one year and then moved to the New Cairo British International School in Egypt where I have been based for the last 15 years.
