Paul McDaniel

Head of Primary

I have been working at The British College of Brazil since 2013, and I have always found the students at our school to be friendly, polite and motivated learners. I have been lucky enough to work with some fantastic families in my time, who have been very supportive of my work and helped to ensure that BCB’s aims and expectations are upheld at home as well as at school. Since becoming a Nord Anglia school, the opportunities for professional development have been excellent. It is clear that investing in the development of highly skilled staff is a key priority for Nord Anglia schools.


For my undergraduate degree, I studied English Language and Sociology at The University of Sheffield. After graduating, I returned to London and completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Middlesex University. I was fortunate enough to secure a position teaching Year 4 at an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ school in North London before the end of my course, and I went on to spend six years working across Key Stage 2 and coordinating PE, G&T and ICT. At the time of my decision to move to Brazil, I was working in Year 6, so I was surprised but excited to accept a position teaching in Year 2. It was a whole new experience for me, and has without doubt enriched my practice. I enjoyed working with the Key Stage One pupils so much that I completed a further four years leading Year 1 and Year 2 as Key Stage One Coordinator, before moving back into Year 6 at the start of 2018/19. I am now working on developing the approach to assessment across the whole of the primary school, alongside my new responsibility as Deputy Head. 

I was born and raised in London, which is where I spent the first 18 years of my life before moving up to Sheffield for university. I returned home for a few years before the call of the big wide world encouraged me to take the plunge and apply to The British College of Brazil. As an avid football fan, I spend a lot of time (probably too much time, if I am being honest!) playing, watching and reading about the game. I recently extended this interest to include writing, as I am currently producing reports for a blog that covers the Brasileirao, the Brazilian first division. I have also tried my hand at a variety of other sports, such as golf and squash, with varying degrees of success! I enjoy reading about a range of topics including history, technology and current affairs, and I try my best to keep up with the news events of the day.
