Staff Profile: Shaun Rhodes

Year 4 Leader

Having experienced the exclusive benefits of an English public school education, Shaun spent some years following this enjoying himself; globe-trotting and indulging in outdoor pursuits.

Shaun graduated from the University of East London with a teaching degree (PGCE) and taught in the local area where he learnt a great deal about education and life. He then began his career in international education working in Thailand and Kuwait before deciding on joining BISS Puxi. In the classroom, Shaun thrives on challenging students and developing their ability to problem solve, cope with life’s complexities and guiding them to become confident and inquisitive individuals.
