Lucy Harper

My passion for sport is what drew me to British International School of Chicago. The sporting facilities here are second to none and are an unmatched platform to promote sport. 

Most recently, I was employed in the UK as Head of Year 9 and Head of Citizenship and Persona, Social and Health Education. I was been fortunate enough to be part of two teams, the academic and the pastoral. Along with these roles, I supported the Senior Management Team in dealing with call–outs and the day-to-day running of school. I also completed my master’s degree in education with the University of Bath, and already this has provided me with the opportunity to combine educational theory with practice. 

As well as my teaching job, I love to coach! Back in England I was the U16 Hampshire Schools girls football team coach. The team was English Schools Winners in 2012 and Regional Champions for the last three years. I was also involved at Portsmouth Football Club as U18 girls head coach and at Surrey Girls Performance Centre as U13 coach. 

My interest in sport is evident in my everyday life, I am a keen football player and have just finished playing for Southampton Saints Ladies FC. I also play netball, playing competitively every week for my club. I have also enjoyed sports both socially and competitively; I was a regular member of my local amateur swimming, badminton and volleyball clubs. Alternatively, I enjoy playing the guitar, skateboarding, surfing and scuba diving and am qualified to Ocean Diver Level.
