With current Northbridge International School Cambodia Head of Secondary Mr Ben Holman moving to a new post within our Nord Anglia Education family of schools from the beginning of next academic year, we look forward to welcoming his replacement Ms Frances Morton, who joins us in August 2019.
Ms Frances has a Masters Degree in Toxicology, a Bachelor Degree in Biochemistry and a PGCE from Worcester College.
Having qualified as a teacher in the UK in 1994, Ms Frances spent 3 years teaching in Wales before joining the international circuit. She has since taught in the USA, UAE, New Zealand, Argentina and Colombia. She has also been a Senior IBDP Examiner and Moderator in Biology for 12 years.
She will be joining Northbridge International School Cambodia from Colegio Gran Bretaña in Bogotá, where she was the Head of Secondary.
Ms Frances’ philosophy in education is that children can learn when the education environment is inclusive and student centred, and that a successful educational environment is achieved when it is built on relationships and clear goal setting. She is a strong believer in seeing people’s assets, and enjoys bringing teachers together in a bid to nurture a sense of team.
She is very excited about coming to Northbridge next year to lead the Secondary school, and exploring Southeast Asia. She will travel with her husband and two of their four children.
Teenagers, including at Northbridge International School Cambodia, are at a crucial stage in their lives as they try to navigate the complexities of growing up. They are faced with the challenge of balancing academic demands, peer pressure, and family expectations, all while trying to discover their own identity and purpose in life.
After becoming a father for the second time on NYE 2022, I was able to re-evaluate my lifestyle and reflect on how to improve myself for my family, my community, including at Northbridge International School Cambodia, and the planet.
For school year 2022-2023, Northbridge International School Cambodia installed some updates in the Secondary Science Laboratory Classrooms that the NISC Health and Safety Audit Committee has been working on from the previous school year based on the Nord Anglia Regional Manager on Health and Safety suggestions.
For the last several months grade 10 students at Northbridge International School Cambodia have been thinking about their futures and the pathways they intend to take both next year in the DP and subsequently after.
