Catherine Lambert

Catherine gained her BSc (Hons) in Geography from Exeter University before completing her PGCE in Secondary Geography at Birmingham University in 2006. She then combined this with her love of sport, teaching both subjects at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire. She taught a variety of individual sports as well as coaching hockey, netball and rounders teams from Year 7 to Year 13. Catherine has lived in Switzerland, Beijing and Shanghai and, as her family has grown over the years, she has worked with students across all age groups from Pre-Nursery to IB, and in a variety of different settings and roles. Catherine has been part of the BISS community for over 5 years and thoroughly enjoys being part of such a dynamic, motivational and inspirational PE department.

As a ‘whole school’ teacher, Catherine believes that sport brings many wide-reaching benefits to children and she is passionate about making sport and exercising fun and accessible. She enjoys seeing the tangible changes and progress her students make over the course of the academic year; a student becoming more confident in their ability, more willing to take risks, mastering a skill they’ve been practising or achieving a personal goal they’ve been working towards. The variety of teaching across the whole school is one aspect of the job that Catherine particularly likes; from introducing sport in a fun way to our newest, youngest students, or coaching a specific sport or skill to our Key Stage 5 students.

Catherine likes visiting new places, trying new restaurants around Shanghai and travelling with her family. Her three girls play many sports and Catherine enjoys spending time cheering them on in their sporting endeavours. She keeps fit by running, cycling and playing netball in her spare time.
