Head of Business and Economics

I graduated in Economics and Politics from Bristol University in 1980. I stayed in the city to complete my PGCE at the University of the West of England. I then spent many years as a teacher in three different state comprehensive schools in the area, holding various positions of responsibility. In my last UK post the school won the DFE National Award for Creativity and Enterprise. 

I joined the British International School of Bratislava in August 2006, as Head of the Humanities faculty. This was my first overseas appointment. I chose the British International School Bratislava because I had enjoyed visiting many cities in Central Europe and wanted to experience a different life style.

I see myself very much as a teacher first and manager second. I do not wish to move too far away from the classroom professionally. My main hobbies revolve around reading and sports. I enjoy reading modern novels by writers such as McCarthy, Naipaul & Roth. I enjoy watching rugby and playing football and basketball. I used to run competitively but this is only recreational now.

Little known fact; I have never missed a penalty in a football match.

What the students say about me 

He makes Economics my favourite IB subject; a combination of learning and fun is always there.

Great teacher, always pushing students to their best.

He has got a brilliant sense of humour.

He is a master of the ninja’s art

Egoistic economist in the best possible way

His powerpoints are brilliant ( he always matches his shirt to the powerpoint and then pretends to have disappeared) – great fun

I actually leave the classroom a tad richer than when I entered it – and this is actually true.

He always gives coherent explanations and really helpful advice

Gives loads of great feedback
