  • Michael Hudspith

    Joint Head of Primary Science / Year 1 Class Teacher

    Michael Hudspith

    Michael attended the University of Reading where he studied a Bachelor of Science degree in Rural Environmental Science. During his time at university he spent a number of hours learning about a range of topics from countryside management to ecological convservation and geology.

    Although he thoroughly enjoyed his degree, Michael realised that his real passion was working with children, something that he had the opportunity to do whilst working as a Teaching Assistant at his mother’s primary school. He undertook a PGCE at the University of Chichester and, upon qualification, began work as a Year 6 teacher at St Paul’s Catholic Primary School in Portsmouth. Michael taught as a Year 6 teacher for three years during which time he was Year Leader and PE Co-ordinator before gaining a middle leadership position as Religious Education Leader which gave him the opportunity to work with teachers across Key Stage 1 and 2 and improve standards in teaching. After a thoroughly enjoyable challenge of working in Portsmouth for three years, Michael is now very excited about working for Nord Anglia in Shanghai and working in a different environment with a younger age group.

    After working in a challenging area of the UK, Michael has had the opportunity to develop his classroom skills by completing a number of courses ranging from Outstanding Teaching to Assessment for Learning (AfL) and the benefits of higher order questioning in the classroom. Also, he has worked hard to gain an indepth understanding of assessment procedures, both formative and summative, and how they can be used to inform teaching on a day to day basis to ensure that every child in his class makes progress. If asked, Michael would probably say that his greatest strength in the classroom is his relationship with his class as he feels that a classroom where children can enjoy their learning and have fun is one where they will thrive and achieve the most, both socially and academically.
