Rachel Thorpe

History Teacher

Ms Thorpe graduated with a BA Hons in History from the University of Birmingham, then completed the Teach First Leadership Programme through Birbeck, University of London.

Having graduated with a BA Hons in History from the University of Birmingham, I completed the Teach First Leadership Programme through Birbeck, University of London, in 2012.

I spent four years teaching History at a Secondary school in London with a particular focus on raising attainment in examination classes, while completing training as a GCSE examiner. In 2015 I moved to Dubai and have spent the last four years teaching at a British International school, gaining exposure to the IB curriculum. I am excited to begin my journey at Nord Anglia, Abu Dhabi and continue to share my passion for History with young people.   

My love for History spreads outside the classroom and is reflected by my interest in travelling, reading and listening to podcasts on topical issues. I am also a keen swimmer and practice Iyengar yoga weekly.
