After studying for an MA in International Management, Lois went on to complete a PGCE in Business Studies at the University of Huddersfield. Her most recent role was at Ruislip High School in North West London, where she was Head of Business Studies.
One of Lois’ strengths in this role, was her passion to bring business to life for students. For four years, she ran Company Programme through Young Enterprise, whereby students had a chance to establish and run their own business. In 2013 she supported a group of Year 10 to 13 students who were runners up in the West London finals. Lois also supported students to arrange other enterprise projects, such as Ruislip High School’s first music festival, which was opened by the Mayor of Hillingdon and featured in the Uxbridge Gazette.
Lois has been keen to work abroad for several years now. She took the decision to work in Shanghai, so that she could emerge herself in the Chinese culture and explore this part of the world. However her main motivation was to give her three young children, Matilda 4 and her 1 year old twins, the opportunity to become real global citizens of the world.
What the students say about me...

“Mrs Johnston-Walker puts emphasis on class discussions so we get a better understanding of business theory.”
“She always questions us to get us to think about topics more deeply.”
