Chris Mather

PE Teaching Assistant

Mr. Mather has been a PE teacher since 2008, and joined the School in 2021.

I have been a PE teacher since 2008, where I worked in a School in Plymouth, UK, rising to Head of Department. I was responsible for the Outdoor Education programme, whereby my team and I took advantage of being on the doorstep of Dartmoor in Devon.

 In 2013, my wife and I moved to Abu Dhabi with our 3-year-old son Archie. I started working as a Personal Trainer until returning to working in a school setting when I joined the PE Department at another British School. I have always been extremely impressed with the ethos of the students and staff of The British International School Abu Dhabi and I am excited to start the next chapter of my career here.

In my spare time - I enjoy road cycling, football and once the weather cools down, I would love to get out on the water on paddle boards with my family. I also love to hike and camp, exploring the mountains in RAK around Jebel Jais.
