Simon Jermond

Year 4 Teacher

My name is Simon Jermond and I am thrilled to be part of the Nord Anglia family as a teacher at the International School in New York.


After gaining my PGCE from Southbank University, I worked as a class teacher at an ‘Outstanding’ three form entry Junior School in South East London in the UK, where my most recent roles have been Head of Year 5, Associate Literacy Co-ordinator and Performing Arts Leader.

I am completing an MA in Education and also have experience in teaching at Secondary School and Further Education level in the more specialised area of Drama and Theatre Studies.

I love my work and am a huge believer that meaningful education happens as a direct result of positive and supportive relationships between teachers, pupils and parents. I am also committed to helping learners develop a positive mindset and work to coach them to articulate what they want out of their school journey and help them identify the steps they need to achieve their goals.

Prior to becoming a teacher I worked (and quite often didn’t work) as an actor, writer, director and musician in theatre, film, TV and radio and I have enjoyed transferring those collaborative and interprative skills to my teaching practice. I believe that in order to help children develop the higher order thinking skills they need to succeed in the world they need to be given the opportunity to respond creatively, imaginatively and collaboratively in class. Entrepeneurs think outside the box, they need to be given the space to think differently.

My interests beyond the classroom include theatre, TV and film. Food (big time), football and current affairs.

I have come to New York with my wife, and my two boys who already love being part of this special school community.
