Staff Profile: Mr. S. MacKinnon

Mr. S. MacKinnon

Head of Science and Head of Balmoral House

Mr MacKinnon's professional qualifications include MSc (Management), BSc (Hons) (Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGDE) from the University of Glasgow. He is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and he has taught Key Stage 3 Science, IGCSE Science and the IB Diploma. 

 

I am from Scotland originally, where I started teaching in a school in Glasgow.  I then moved to a fantastic school in Essex, England before deciding to relocate overseas.  Since 2011, I have worked at Al Yasmina International School in Abu Dhabi, UAE.  Al Yasmina has BSME status and is regarded as one of the best British Schools in Abu Dhabi.  Within Al Yasmina I have worked as a Head of Year and Head of Chemistry. I have taught Key Stage 3 Science, IGCSE Science, Advanced Higher Chemistry, IB and A Level Chemistry with excellent results including 100% A* - C in IGCSE Science in two consecutive years and 80% A - C in A Level Chemistry.  

In my spare time I love all things sporty, namely football, squash and golf.  I am pursuing my interest in trekking and hill walking – a hobby that was quite limited when residing in a desert!
