Head of Secondary


Simon was previously Head of Secondary at Compass International School in Doha. He graduated in Physics from Bristol University in the UK, and then studied trumpet for four years at the Royal College of Music in London, where he met his wife Alison (also a trumpet player and much better than him!). He taught and played trumpet professionally for a while before returning to Physics to teach in a large state school in Dudley in the UK. The Porter family embarked on their international adventure with their three children firstly in Peru, followed by Papua New Guinea and Norway. Compass International School is Simon’s third Nord Anglia Education School, having previously taught in our schools in Warsaw and Houston.  As a teacher who has been with Nord Anglia for 11 years, many times Simon has sought and benefitted from advice and help from teachers in different countries in other NAE schools. This, along with our collaborations with such organizations as MIT and Juilliard, mean that the British School of Tashkent is not working alone, but can call upon the help and expertise from educators and experts from around the world. Not many international schools can say that. Simon’s own three children are proud graduates of a Nord Anglia school. Simon comes from Nottingham in the UK and is a fiercely proud supporter of Nottingham Forest (twice Champions league winners in the 70s). He loves to go to concerts (classical and Heavy Rock) and hates cooking! Simon hopes very much that our secondary school will be warm, friendly and indeed fun, whilst still achieving the highest academic standards in Uzbekistan. He will do his utmost to ensure that both students and staff prosper during his time in Tashkent. His interest lies in what happens in the classroom, and he hopes that this will be evident when he starts work in Tashkent. He very much looks forward to meeting you all in August
