Ben Stanier

Ben Stanier

English Teacher and Head of Year 10

Mr Stanier taught English in the United Kingdom before moving to teach in Abu Dhabi in 2015, and then joined BIS Abu Dhabi in 2017.

I began my teaching journey by joining High Arcal Secondary School in the UK on the Graduate Teacher Programme in 2010. I remained with the school for 5 enjoyable years as an English Teacher, a 2nd in Department and finally the joint Head of English for my final two years at the school.

In 2015, my family and I moved to Abu Dhabi where I spent two years teaching English in the public school system, an incredibly rewarding and enriching cultural experience, before joining The British International School Abu Dhabi in 2017.

As well as having a passion for reading and writing, I also love playing and being involved in a variety of different sports. I have played rugby for many years and now also enjoy coaching my young son’s rugby team here in Abu Dhabi. As the body becomes less willing to play competitive rugby, a nice walk on the golf course is quickly becoming my new sporting release. I am a proud parent of two young children. We love living in Abu Dhabi and enjoy the varied and exciting opportunities it brings.
