    Head of Science

    David Wheeler

    I was born and raised in Aberdare, a town in the Cynon Valley area of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales.  As a student, I attended a Welsh-medium comprehensive school.  After completing my A-levels, I went to Swansea University and studied for a BSc in Physics and Medical Physics, attaining a 2:1 with honours in 2003.

    Immediately after completion of my PGCE from the University of Cardiff, I began my teaching career as the Head of Physics at a secondary Welsh-medium school in Swansea.  In 2009, I was successful in attaining a post in Beijing at a very large and prestigious local school, teaching A Level and IB Physics to Chinese students, eventually becoming the Vice Principal of the school in charge of the IGCSE and A Level programmes as well as being the International Award Coordinator.  During my tenure, I was part of a team that led a group of 50 students to become the first Chinese school to successfully summit Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa’s highest peak.

    Assistant Head of Science

    Lucy Thompson

    I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Biological Science from the University of Leicester in the UK. It is here that I also gained my PGCE in 2010 before beginning my teaching career as a Science teacher at an Academy in Milton Keynes.

    I originally come from Durham, in the Northeast of England, however I spent much of my childhood in Germany.  In 2012 I returned there to take up teaching position in a British school near Hannover.  My love for travelling drove me to seek employment further afield and I join BSB from an International School in Malaysia where I have been teaching for the past 2 years.

    Steven Finn

    Chemistry and Science Teacher

    Steven Finn

    I was born in Manchester and spent the majority of my early life in the North West of England, apart from one year in Australia.  At school I was very active in sports and I became interested in maths and science.  After graduating from Bradford University I went into the chemical industry where I had roles as an Adhesive Chemist, Chemical Technical Representative for the whole of the U.K as well as running my own business.

    In 2005 I started my career in teaching, obtaining my PGCE from Edge Hill University in Lancashire, England. Since then I have taught in Lancashire, Guernsey, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates and China. In the Middle East I taught general science, IGCSE Physics and IGCSE, A level, IBDP Chemistry as well as holding middle management positions. As a manager I also won U15 Kuwait football tournament. For the last 2 years I have been the Head of Chemistry at a local prestigious school in Beijing teaching A level and IB Chemistry to high achieving Chinese students.

    My fondest memories have been to see students realise their dreams of going onto the university of their choice. I am pleased to be joining BSB to teach students from various countries in an international school with their fantastic facilities and resources.
