Staff Profile: Ben Holman

Head of Secondary

Head of Secondary

Ben Holman joined Northbridge International School, Cambodia as Head of Secondary in August 2016.  A graduate from The Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium with a MA in European Studies.  Ben holds a PGCE from The University of Exeter and a BSc in Human Geography from Brunel University.



Prior to relocating to Cambodia in August 2016 I taught for 11 years, 7 of which as an MYP Individual and Societies Teacher and DP Geography Teacher, plus MYP Personal Project and DP Extended Essay Supervisor.  At my first school in the UK, a National Curriculum School, I also taught KS3/4 P.E.


I have held various leadership positions for 7 years in both national and international settings. 


Some of my professional achievements include my first ever DP Standard Level Geography class scoring a whole point above the world average and I loved every minute of teaching them!


As Head of Secondary at my previous school in Colombia, some of my career highlights which I was proud to oversee included, successful IB Programme evaluations for MYP & DP, significantly raising and maintaining DP results, nuturing an inclusive learning environment, developing a Learning Support Department and creating a happy learning environment (with teacher accountability) based on shared values and finally transforming student learning through an eLearning plan.


I enjoy football, both to watch and to play.  My favourite football team is Chelsea which is also the name of our dog.  I am engaged to my fiancé Erika, we have been together for 7 years.  We enjoy walking Chelsea and also going to the cinema.  We are delighted to be in Cambodia and really looking forward to travelling and trying all the new foods.


What the students say about me...

...that I am strict but approachable.  I have a great relationship with all my students - they all matter!


This School is different to all others I have worked at because...

...it is just wonderful and a truly inclusive learning environment.
