As Education Director, Andy drives the strategy for building an outstanding education for Nord Anglia students worldwide. His vast experience and knowledge in international education have helped to guide the organisation's Be Ambitious philosophy and quality assurance within our family of schools.
Andy joined Nord Anglia Education in August 2013 as Principal of The British School of Beijing, Shunyi. Andy has taught in the UK since 1986 as a teacher of French, German and Latin, following a career path through Head of Modern Languages in a large Essex school and Deputy Headship, also in Essex. Prior to joining NAE, he spent 16 years as Headteacher of two large and highly successful schools.
Andy graduated from Corpus Christi College Cambridge with an MA in Modern and Medieval Languages and also holds a PGCE from Cambridge and a Diploma in Education Management from Anglia University.
Andy is committed to the belief that every student can succeed more highly than they thought possible if schools provide the right environment and remain relentlessly focused on providing the highest quality of teaching and learning.
