Ross Wales


Geography & Business Studies Teacher

Mr Wales completed a Sc. in Geography from the University of Sussex in 2004 and went on to complete a M.Sc. in Climate Change at the University of East Anglia in 2006.

I entered the private sector working for an Environmental Consultancy that specialized in Oil and Gas where I was a Geographical Information Systems specialist. After two years I took this experience on to train as a Geography Teacher completing my PGCE at the University of Portsmouth and subsequently working at Cowes Enterprise College on the Isle of Wight for three years.

I was born in Qatar and always had interests to move back to the Middle East. Nord Anglia has an ever growing presence in education in this part of the world and BIS Abu Dhabi has given me an excellent opportunity to share my experiences with a great mixture of students.

I love exploring, the sea, the desert or the mountains. I love finding the lesser known areas of the world and if swimming becomes part of that, then even better. I am a passionate wakeboarder and kitesurfer. I competed when I was in school in Singapore and after a 15 year gap I am now competing again here in Abu Dhabi. I have most enjoyed taking the school CCA wake boarding activity here at school and sharing my favourite sport.
