    Andrew Cunliffe

    I trained and qualified as a Primary School teacher in Southampton, UK and initially worked in Year 3 and Year 4.  I have always been internationally minded and my desire to combine my love of teaching with the opportunity to work overseas was an obvious choice. I have worked overseas for 15 years and am fortunate to have worked in well-established and developing schools in Egypt, Thailand, Kuwait and Vietnam before arriving in Guangzhou.

    Year 3 Learning Leader

    Richard Marwood

    I have spent the majority of my life living in Devon in a small town called Paignton. I attended a local Primary, as well as a grammar school, before attending Marjon University in Plymouth. Here I gained my Bachelor of Education teaching qualification with a 2:1 degree classification. Immediately after finishing my degree I took the decision to take a month out and live in Kenya, teaching in a charity school alongside Kenyan teachers where I implemented parts of the British curriculum to young Kenyan children. I found this experience hugely rewarding and it gave me further desire to begin my own teaching career.

    After deciding that teaching was the job for me I studied and gained my degree from Bath Spa University College in the UK. I have now been teaching for seventeen fun-filled years. During this time, I have worked in a range of schools in the UK and overseas. I love working in Key Stage Two and have done so for most of my teaching career. This year I had my first experience of Key Stage One, which presented different challenges and showed me how rewarding it can be to work with younger children within a school.

    In 2013, I graduated with a degree in Business and Management from Aston Business School and worked in recruitment before becoming a teaching assistant at The British School of Guangzhou. During my time at BSG, I discovered my passion for teaching and began pursuing a career in this field. Over the last few years, I have obtained several language qualifications including a TEFL, TESOL and a teaching certification from the University of West Florida. I spent the last three years working with Key Stage 1 EAL students and this year I am thrilled to make the transition to Key Stage 2 as a Year 3 class teacher. I’ve worked with many of the current year 3 students over the past year and I am honored to be a part of their education for a 3rd year in a row.

    Year 3 Teacher

    Timothy Hogg

    I grew up on the outskirts of South-East London and after completing an Undergraduate degree in International Politics and International History at University, I went travelling around Australia and South-East Asia for a year.  It was in Northern Thailand that I began teaching English as part of voluntary work for an NGO.  I found the experience rewarding and gained my PCGE in Primary Education.  I began my career at a school in England, where I was PE coordinator, responsible for overseeing the sports teams and implementing the new PE Curriculum.  After 3 years, the lure of travelling took me to teach in Qatar, where I gained a huge amount of experience working with children who often spoke English as a second language.

    Year 4 Teacher

    After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Media from the University of Plymouth, I was elected as the Sports President for the Students’ Union. During a 2 year period, participation figures increased and my positive influence provided me with an opportunity to work directly for the University to advise on future policy and strategy relating to Sport. It was during this time where I worked closely with the Primary Education department – teaching specialist sport modules - that my interest in teaching was confirmed.
