Mathew Holt

Year 6 Teacher

Having achieved a bachelor honors degree in history at Trinity College Dublin, I moved to London and studied law at BPP Law School. Whilst there, I was introduced to a teacher training program and charity called TeachFirst. With my law qualifications completed, I took a year out to work in primary schools across the South of England and decided to enroll in the TeachFirst program. I was part of their first Primary specific teaching cohort and set off on my teaching career and taught for two years at the Ofsted outstanding Woodberry Down Community Primary School, Hackney. I then moved across town and worked at England's highest performing, non-selective state school; King Solomon Academy, Westminster for three years. Both were fantastic experiences. Although I love London and miss it dearly, I am greatly enjoying life in my new city of Boston.

Being a part of one of the first TeachFirst primary cohorts was a great achievement. It was a very challenging experience but I learned a great deal from my mentors, fellow teachers and of course children that I had the pleasure to teach. I have also had the honor of teaching a lesson in front of the Education Secretary at that time, Michael Gove and the now Secretary of State for Justice, Elizabeth Trus!

When not at work, I enjoy being outside and active. I have recently taken up skiing in the winter season and am looking to explore New England's trails and waterways with bike and kayak in the better weather. When we can, my wife and I try to visit new cities and countries on our mission to find the most scenic restaurant or bar in the world.

Since arriving at BISB, I have been overwhelmed by the friendly welcome, outstanding children and family atmosphere fostered at the school. Every class I walk into has a focus for learning and a respect towards each other that is second to none.
