Secondary - Deputy & Assistant Heads

    Deputy Head of Secondary, Science Teacher

    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.

    I am thrilled to join BSB, Shunyi in August 2017 to take up the post of Assistant Head and IB Coordinator.

    I am originally from a beautiful seaside village in Ireland and moved to England as a teenager. In 2002 I graduated from The University of Sheffield with a BA (HONS) in French and Hispanic Studies. Following the completion of my PGCE, again at The University of Sheffield, I remained in the city to begin my teaching career.

    Assistant Head of Secondary

    Mark Hardman

    Having completed a B.A. (Hons) degree in Fine Art at Leeds Polytechnic,  I spent the following year working for the Merseyside Artist-in-Residence based in studios near the city centre.  This ‘interesting’ experience encouraged me to seek a ‘real’ job so I decided to complete a PGCE course at Leicester University and then secured a job as Teacher of Art at a school near Southend-on-Sea in Essex.  Fifteen years later I moved to the nearby FitzWimarc School in Rayleigh as Head of Creative Arts, where I also met my wife, Julie, who was appointed as an English Teacher on the same day.  Whilst at The FitzWimarc School I also completed my NPQH qualification and subsequently moved to The Ockendon School as Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for staff induction and directing the student teacher programme for GTP and PGCE courses.  My final post in the UK was at The Skinners’ Kent Academy in Royal Tunbridge Wells, where my role as Assistant Principal included the line management of five departments, overseeing staff professional development and directing teaching and learning and middle and senior leader programmes.  During my last term at SKA, the school was inspected by OFSTED and subsequently moved from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’. 

    Having gained an in-depth knowledge of the English educational system for thirty-one years, I found the opportunity to join BSB and develop my own knowledge and skills in a contrasting system too hard to turn down. I believe passionately about education, the positivity of young people and the hope it gives us for future generations.  Nothing we do is as important.
