Christopher Anderson


Music Teacher and Head of Year 9

Mr Anderson completed a Music degree and then went on to study a Masters in Music IT. He enjoyed developing Music and Performing Arts faculties in the Greater Manchester area for 10 years before moving to Abu Dhabi to join the school.

My long-standing love for teaching has centered on my nurturing student’s belief in their own musicality through excellent performance opportunities inside and outside the classroom. Through this I aspire to provide my students with the resilience to move onto the wider world of further education, employment and engagement in Music.

After completing my Music degree, I went onto to study towards a Masters in Music IT. I decided to enter the teaching profession and for 10 years I enjoyed developing Music and Performing Arts faculties in the Greater Manchester area. During this time, I developed strong links with the departments I worked in with the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester Camerata, The Halle Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic.

In my spare time I love to cook, to walk in the English northern parks, I love to visit new countries, to follow the latest mediocre offerings from my beloved Wolverhampton Wanderers and to watch cricket. I also have a strong penchant for overly long prog rock songs!

The opportunity to develop as a classroom teacher in my first overseas post with a fantastic creative arts team at The British International School in Abu Dhabi was such an exciting opportunity that I could not refuse. 

I am also very excited by the new challenge of taking up the post of Head of Year 8 who I look forward to developing into confident global citizens. I am sure that with my help the class of 2021 will enjoy recording breaking results!
