Mark Collinson

Mr. Collinson has a degree in Business Studies from the University of Lincoln and completed his PGCE whilst based in Abu Dhabi from the University of Sunderland. 

I have a degree in Business Studies from the University of Lincoln and did my PGSE in PE 8 years ago whilst working as a Teaching Assistant at BIS Abu Dhabi. I have just completed my 10th year in the school and have seen some amazing changes over that time with the school almost trebling in size.

My main hobbies outside of teaching are all mainly sport-based and I am a keen footballer, golfer, and cricketer. I also like to keep fit and try to keep up with Rugby League back home in Hull when possible. As well as sport, I am also a keen reader of Military History. Although I don’t like to admit it I am a big Arsenal Fan and before moving abroad travelled to most football grounds on a weekend as a member of their supporter's club with my Dad and brother.

BIS Abu Dhabi has given me a great opportunity to be a teacher in a subject for which I have so much passion and I look forward to working here for many more years.
