Andy Puttock, Principal at LCIS


A very warm welcome to La Cote International School Aubonne.

It is an honour to lead this vibrant and dynamic school as Principal. With over 30 years experience in teaching and 22 in school leadership in the state, independent and international sector, I can say that there is no greater privilege than working with young people during their formative years. 

I have previously been the Principal of three schools (two in the UK and one in China) where I was proud to have my own children as students, so I experienced first-hand the critical importance of the right choice of school. As Principal, I want parents and students to feel they know me well, and encourage them to come and see me at any time, to celebrate success and to raise any concern, however small.

I first joined NAE in August 2013 as Principal of The British School of Beijing, Shunyi, after 16 years as Headteacher of two large and highly successful schools in the UK. I was then appointed as Education Director at Nord Anglia Education, driving the strategy for building an outstanding education for Nord Anglia students worldwide. My experience in the education sector helped to guide the organisation's philosophy and quality assurance within the family of schools. Prior to joining NAE, I taught in the UK since 1986 as a teacher of French, German and Latin, following a career path through Head of Modern Languages in a large Essex school and Deputy Headship, also in Essex. I graduated from Corpus Christi College Cambridge with an MA in Modern and Medieval Languages and also hold a PGCE from Cambridge and a Diploma in Education Management from Anglia University.
