Prior to relocating to Shanghai, Richard held various leadership roles in a culturally diverse inner-city school in Birmingham, The United Kingdom. Whilst there, he oversaw all components of English Reading and Writing provision, including teaching and learning quality assurance, data-tracking and assessment, and curriculum design. Throughout this time, Richard was also responsible for mentoring trainee teachers through both PGCE and Teach First Programmes.
Richard has spent several years in Nord Anglia Education, latterly in his role of Deputy Head of Primary at The British International School Shanghai, Puxi, before moving to lead Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong, as Head of Primary. Through his wealth of knowledge and experience, he is dedicated to ensuring that every student in our care is enabled to excel in their learning with both confidence and enjoyment.
Before embarking upon his teaching vocation, Richard was privileged to work for both The Royal Household, including Royal Collection Education, and The College of St. George, Windsor Castle – providing him with many fascinating anecdotes with which to engage eager students over the years! In his free time, he loves nothing more than to read, a joy that he never tires of sharing with his students.
Looking to the year ahead, Richard is looking forward greatly to getting to know our Early Years and Primary students and parents, and to seeing every one of our students flourish throughout the year.
