    Adam Newland

    Year 3 Class Teacher

    Adam Newland

    I began studying Marine and Natural History photography at Falmouth University in 2012. The subject of my degree is specific and unusual as well as being a topic quite personal to me. Exploring the world through a lens, large or small, enabled me to appreciate the world we have and the importance to preserve and protect it. 

    I continued my studies at Greenwich University, completing my PGCE in Primary Education. Since then, I have taught in South East London as a Year 3 and Year 6 teacher and Art and Design subject lead. My decision to join the team at BISS Puxi and move to Shanghai comes from my enthusiasm for teaching and exploring. I am excited to be a part of a driven and ambitious team.
