Heidi Rowlands


Head of Experimental Sciences, SEHS and Chemistry & 12HR Tutor

I completed my B.Sc in Environmental Geology and my M.Sc in Engineering Geology at the University of Leeds, where my research projects focussed on Geochemistry. I then spent 3 years working for a multinational environmental engineering consultancy before deciding to change vocation and become a teacher. I completed my PGCE at the University of Bristol in 2004, and worked at a large comprehensive school in Wiltshire for 3 years, before deciding to go into International Teaching. For the last decade I have had the great privilege to teach in Thailand, Nepal, and Brunei, as both a Chemistry teacher and a Head of Department, and I am now very excited to be part of the Science Department at BISB as Head of Chemistry. 

In my spare time I love to go travelling with my 6 year old son. We enjoy the outdoors and are both very much looking forward to exploring Slovakia and the surrounding countries.
