Staff Profile: Claire Morley

Claire Morley

9 CM: DSE Pathways English Specialist

Claire's teaching career began in England where she completed a BA in English Language at Lancaster University. From here she became more involved in teaching teenagers and adults with a variety of learning difficulties and went on to complete a PGCE in Further, Adult and Higher Education.

Claire was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to work as an individual tutor for students with dyslexia and since completed further qualifications specialising in dyslexia provision. These included a PG Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) accredited by the British Dyslexia Association and Manchester Metropolitan University, as well as an MA in SpLD. She is qualified and registered with the BDA to conduct formal assessments for dyslexia and set up individual learning plans to support and help young adults which she is very passionate about. She has been working in this field for over five years.

She was interested in working at Dover Court due to the emphasis placed on children with specific learning needs and the individualised approach the school has to its senior students in particular. A lot of students benefit from smaller class sizes and the recognition of every student’s skills and qualities makes the school appear welcoming and inclusive.

She felt Singapore would be an interesting option due to the cultural diversity present at the school and in the surrounding community. She has completed her first year teaching internationally at Dover Court and it has been a life changing experience that has had a major impact on her professionally, given her new challenges and opened her mind to different ways of working.

She was born in England and lived most of her life with her family in the Lake District surrounded by mountains and countryside. She enjoys being creative and doing yoga.
