how we teach

Our talented teachers shape learning experiences that motivate your child to achieve remarkable academic success, qualifying your child for the best universities worldwide and opening up the pathways to get there.


BSG teachers transform the lives of their students. Being part of the Nord Anglia family means we attract the most passionate educators, and they uphold standards that are second to none. They stay ahead of the curve by undergoing professional development, using top strategies to deliver personalised lessons for our students’ success.

Our students accelerate through their learning because they’re engaged, enthusiastic, and motivated. We’re incredibly proud when 97% of parents say their child is happy at our school.



BSG teachers guide our students through smart and strategic uses of digital technology, so they can further their projects to an advanced level or enrich their understanding of a given topic. Our digital library prepares our students for advanced research through digital techniques and by using equipment like interactive white boards, Smart TVs, iPads, MacBooks, and robotics, our students have high-quality STEAM learning experiences. Our STEAM activities foster invaluable skills around innovation, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving.

Our students especially benefit from Nord Anglia’s state-of-the-art education technology platform, Global Campus, which gives your child unique access to world-leading online resources. Through Global Campus, your child can study, share, and learn with other international students across 32 countries, expanding their global awareness and bringing international perspectives to life.

Tim Richardson
Tim Richardson started his teaching career in the UK, having graduated with a Bachelor’s in Education from Exeter University. He very quickly realised his passion for international education and moved to the Middle East to teach in one of the first truly international schools in Dubai.

After initially teaching the equivalent of Primary Key Stage 2, he had a series of positions of responsibility and after 11 years in the classroom, he was appointed to Deputy Head in the same school. This marked the beginning of his senior leadership career, which has included Head of Primary at one of Dubai’s leading IB schools as well as Principal of an outstanding National Curriculum school.

After 28 years in Dubai – most of which had been spent preparing his students for further education and careers all over the world – Tim and his wife took heed of their own advice and expanded their horizons. BSG and NAIS were the ideal opportunity for him to become involved with a school with a great history and enormous potential. When the role of school principal became available to him, he was delighted. 

Tim looks forward to working with teachers, school leaders, parents, students, and NAE to develop our two schools into thriving learning hubs, where students can excel in academics, sport, and performing arts, and as mature, confident, and capable citizens of the world.
