Paul Scott

Physics is a subject that captured my imagination from an early age, and led me to study Physics at the University of St Andrews where I completed an MPhys. After this I went on to Imperial College, London where I achieved an MSc in Environmental Technology, specialising in Global Environmental Change and Policy.


My first job out of university was working as an energy, environment, and climate change consultant with a large consultancy firm. My role involved working on a large number of highly technical and challenging projects at the same time. Throughout my time in consultancy I found that the most enjoyable part of my work was helping others to understand and solve problems.

This prompted me to complete my PGCE in Secondary Science at the University of Oxford. I started my teaching career in an innovative and well-run Science Department at Magdalen College School, Brackley, where I have worked for the past three years. My passion for communicating the excitement and wonder of science provides the driving ambition in my career. The opportunity to move to the BISW and to have the chance to work with pupils from around the world truly excites me. I am really looking forward to being part of this diverse community, with many different cultures in one school where everyone can share and learn from each other.
