Before starting at BSG, my last role in the UK was as Head of Geography and Post 16 Enrichment at a large and highly successful 14-19 school in Leicestershire. During my nine years in this role I personally taught over 350 A Level students, which allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the pressures and demands associated with Post 16 study. For me, Sixth Form is the most exciting stage of the educational journey as you get to see first-hand the final result of so many years of hard work and, as Head of Sixth Form, I very much look forward to supporting and guiding our older students as they prepare for a life beyond the British School of Guangzhou.
Throughout my teaching career I have always upheld the belief that teachers should be ambitious in their mindset and actively embrace the opportunities that come our way; after all teachers always ask this of our students and we should therefore lead by example! With this in mind, I have completed the National Qualification in Senior Leadership and undertaken a Lead Teacher role where I explored realistic and measurable ways to make the curriculum more accessible.
When not at school I enjoy travelling and look forward to further exploring SE Asia and Oceania with my wife and two young daughters. I am also an avid Liverpool fan and was delighted to find out that I can watch more live matches on TV in China than back in the UK. I enjoy cooking and, when not rustling up some of my own new dishes, I can be found satisfying my taste buds in the many wonderful restaurants Guangzhou has to offer.
