Mark Hatherell

Head of Secondary and Physics Teacher

I have worked in education since leaving university and have taught in UK State and Independent schools. I have moved to BISB from Kuala Lumpur where I was Head of Secondary in a large International School in the city. 

As an educational leader in school I strive to ensure that students have outstanding learning opportunities during lessons, a plethora of enrichment activities outside the classroom and above all else the opportunity to be part of a caring, nurturing school community. 

School aside, I particularly enjoy fishing and foraging for wild food as well as playing tennis and golf. As a family, we take every opportunity to get outdoors and frequently go camping, walking, cycling, skiing and generally enjoying the bounties that the natural world has to offer. With this in mind, Slovakia is the perfect place to live!
