    Maryke Peacock

    Maryke completed a BEd degree in Primary School Education in South Africa in 1995 and she went into teaching, where she took up the roles of 1st Team Hockey coach and Girl’s hostel student supervisor. In 2000 Maryke moved abroad to the United Kingdom, taking on various educational roles in order to challenge herself and to learn many perspectives, so to serve the schooling community with the best experience and knowledge. Her first UK teaching experience was as a Peripatetic Teacher for special needs children in Southwark-London, where she travelled across the borough, supporting and training parents and teaching staff who work with children who were diagnosed with autism. Her next position was as a class teacher at a multi-cultural school in Hillingdon, where she taught across Key Stage 1 for the next seven years. She then completed her Qualified Teacher Status and progressed to Year Team Leader and Head of PE, before taking time off teaching when she had her two children.

  • Christopher Eales

    Year 1 Teacher

    Christopher Eales

    Chris has been working in Primary and Early Years education in China for over nine years and he is looking forward to his time here at BISS Puxi. He previously managed a kindergarten, later moving on to concurrently manage a training centre, and as someone who continually wanted to improve and develop as a teacher, his move to a Nord Anglia school in Guangzhou six years ago was an obvious choice. Chris is delighted to have been given the opportunity to stay within the institution here in Shanghai, as he feels that not only do they exhibit a high level of professionalism throughout the Nord family of schools, but their dedication to teacher development and their ambitious approach to education are second to none.
