    Head of Primary School

    Nonie Adams

    Joining BSB Shunyi in August 2016 marked my fourth international posting, having been a teacher and leader in international education for many years now. Having qualified as a teacher in Australia, I soon moved to Bangkok to teach at Bangkok Patana school for ten years. I then spent six wonderful years living in Tokyo and working as the Director of Studies at the British School in Tokyo. After ten years as the Head of Primary at Regents International School, Pattaya (a FOBISIA and NAE school), I am now delighted to be living and working in Beijing, China. As a Head of Primary I feel very privileged to be leading a school such as this Primary school where the students are delightful, staff hard-working and committed educationalists and parents supportive and engaged.

    Assistant Head of Primary

    Deborah Spencer

    I initially studied Law at Leeds Metropolitan University and I then had the opportunity to travel overseas. My first introduction to teaching was working at a British school in Malawi, Africa. I enjoyed this so much that I returned to the UK to complete a PGCE and then worked in the UK for 3 years. I then moved to Egypt, where I worked for 2 years. Saudi Arabia beckoned next, and I spent 8 years in Jeddah. During this time, I became a Head of Year and developed my leadership skills further.

    For the last 6 years I have been teaching at BIS HCMC, Vietnam (an NAE School) as  a Year 5 and then Year 6 leader. This has been a fantastic opportunity to be part of a large school going through a variety of exciting and positive changes that has seen it grow to 8 form entry.  I have also had many opportunities to develop professionally through NAU. I am now very excited to be joining BSB Shunyi as the Assistant Head of Primary.
