A highly experienced school leader she moved to Dubai in July 2014 from our sister school the British School of Beijing, Shunyi. Liz holds a degree in Applied Biology, a PGCE from Chichester Institute and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership and Management.
Prior to taking up my role as Head of Primary at NAS Dubai I worked for Nord Anglia Education at the British School of Beijing's Shunyi Campus. China was a very exciting place to live and work but the opportunity to shape the direction of a brand new school was too good to turn down.
Previously I worked for a number of years in both Yorkshire and West Sussex, holding a variety of teaching and senior leadership posts. I have also been lucky enough to teach in the USA.
Here at NAS Dubai we strive to provide personalised learning opportunities for all our pupils, following a High Performance Learning agenda. Although outstanding academic achievement is unquestionably our goal, it is just as important that we build self esteem, instil character and encourage a global outlook in every one of our pupils.
I am tremendously happy to be part of the founding team here at NAS Dubai. My two boys attend the school and since they and my husband are very much enjoying their new life in the UAE, we anticipate a lengthy tenure here in Dubai.
