Heather Threlfall


Nursery Teacher and Early Years Leader

Mrs Threlfall graduated from St Martin’s College In 2008, Lancaster with a BA (Hons) Degree with QTS, specialising in Early Childhood Education. 

I moved to Manchester where I began my teaching career in a Reception class in Didsbury. After 2 years, I became EYFS Leader and a member of the Senior Management Team which developed my leadership and management skills and gave me the challenge I was ready for. I taught Reception for 7 years, before moving to Year 1 to broaden my experience and skills in another key stage. Alongside my leadership role in school, I carry out ad-hoc consultancy work for other schools in the North West of England, specialising in EYFS, KS1, continuous provision and behaviour management.

My husband and I decided to broaden our horizons and make the big move to Abu Dhabi for a new experience in 2016.

I am a happy go lucky, relaxed individual who loves life and lives each day like it’s my last. You will usually find me with a big grin on my face or laughing at my own jokes! I absolutely love travelling and experiencing different cultures and traditions with my husband, we try to never go back to the same place twice! There are so many places in the world that are on our list. My camera is never too far from my hands and I love to photograph the beautiful places we visit.

BIS Abu Dhabi grabbed my attention immediately as I love their approach to teaching and firmly believe in doing my utmost to help children achieve their potential and challenge them on a daily basis.
