Helen scott

Head of IB and English Teacher

Miss Scott achieved her PGCE and QTS in 2004 through the University of Bath. Her PGCE was delivered through SCITT style training giving her the benefit of working and learning every day in a school to gain an immediate insight to what teaching involves. Prior to joining BIS Abu Dhabi in 2017, she taught in the United Kingdom and Bermuda.

Following my PGCE I completed my NQT year teaching English Language and Literature across the Key Stages and Sociology A-Level at Malmesbury School in Wiltshire, England. In 2005 I moved to Highworth Warneford School, in Wiltshire and held a range of responsibility roles including Literacy Coordinator, KS3 Coordinator, Assistant Head of English and Trainee Teacher Mentor. My expertise and interest in Assessment for Learning enabled me to deliver seminars on this area to SCITT trainee teachers and assist QCA with the development of The National Strategy’s APP criteria for Key Stage 3 English.

In 2008 I moved to Bermuda and joined the English Department at Warwick Academy. During this time I was part of the Pastoral Team as Head of Year 10 and Year 11 and successfully set up and introduced the School Council for students, as well as the Work Experience and Careers Program. In 2011 I became a member of the Strategic Team in the role of Head of Sixth Form and therefore have extensive knowledge on areas such as university applications and post-16 curriculums (such as IB and BTEC). My roles of responsibility have enabled me to develop my knowledge from both curriculum and pastoral perspectives, always putting my students at the forefront of what I do.

I applied to teach at BIS Abu Dhabi because the school’s ethos matches what I value in a school: a sense of community where students are encouraged to become well-rounded individuals who are global and critical thinkers. Outside of school I enjoy traveling as much as possible to explore and experience new cultures, as well as keeping fit, socialising and reading.
