Jacqueline O’Neill

Assistant Head of Primary (Curriculum) & Year 5 Teacher

M.Ed, B.Ed

I have worked in the field of education in some form or another for over 20 years. As well as being a strong classroom practitioner, I have held curriculum co-ordinator roles for various primary subjects; managed an Education Centre for a high-profile company; enjoyed a secondment with Education Scotland – the body tasked with improving learning and teaching across Scotland and worked in school leadership as a Principal Teacher in West Lothian. Since moving to the international sector, I have held roles as Subject Leader and, latterly, Assistant Head.


My main achievements include gaining a Master of Education degree from Stirling University and acquiring new skills to support students during times of remote learning. My educational philosophy is based in ‘Growth Mindset’ - the idea that everyone can improve and make progress given the right tools and attitude.

A few years ago, I made the decision to make the move into international education and took up my first post with Nord Anglia Education at Compass International School Doha. While working there, I became aware of the excellent reputation of The British School of Guangzhou in China and so I made this my next move internationally. I am delighted to be part of the BSG family.

In my free time, I enjoy going for long walks. I also enjoy the performing arts and attending concerts. This has been a benefit when helping out with school productions. I also like to read and spend a great deal of time on my kindle.
