MA, BA (Hons), PGCE
Having completed both his BA and MA in Theology and Religious Studies at The University of Leeds, York St. John, Richard worked for The Royal Household, and The College of St. George, Windsor Castle, for seven years. Following on from this exciting chapter, he chose to pursue his long-held ambition to teach, and completed his PGCE in Birmingham in 2013, where he subsequently went on to teach in a culturally diverse inner-city school. Teaching across Key Stage 2, he took on various leadership roles including: English and Reading Lead, EYFS – Year 6; Upper Key Stage 2 Phase Leader; and Teach First and PGCE mentor. Moving on from this much-cherished school community, Richard embarked upon his first international post, joining BISS in 2017 as a Year 3 classroom teacher. Keen to contribute to our BISS community further, Richard took on the roles of Year Leader and English Lead for Primary before joining the Primary Senior Leadership Team as Assistant Head of Primary in 2019 and, latterly, as Deputy Head of Primary in 2021.
