Anna Dunhill (1)

Head of Primary EAL


I graduated from Dartington College of Arts with a degree in Music and Arts Management. As a graduate I came to China with VSO and taught English to university students. After returning to England I taught ESOL at the local adult community college. During this time I gained an adult teaching qualification. Due to my teaching experience, I was accepted onto the Essex Graduate Teacher Training Programme and was awarded my QTS. I gained my Primary Teaching experience working in a large primary school in Essex.

Following this, my family and I made the professional decision to move into the international school’s arena. For two years I taught a year 6 class in an international school in North East China. This experience provided us with a positive insight into the cultural and intellectual traditions of China and in 2016, I joined BSB Shunyi in the vibrant and exciting Chinese capital.

I am from Leigh-On-Sea in Essex which is a lively sea-side town. I have travelled in Europe and in Asia and I have plans to travel and experience as much of China as I can. At university I studied music and I am a keen flutist. I enjoy reading and going to concerts. I have two boys and they are starting to get the hang of speaking Chinese. As a family we enjoy hiking, cycling and going to museums.
