Staff Profiles: Richard Harris

Richard Harris

Head of Y12 and Biology Teacher

I have been teaching Science and Biology for 10 years, 6 in the UK state sector and 4 years here at St Andrews in Bangkok. For the last 2 years I have been a Head of Year at STA for Year 10, 11 and now 12.

I studied at Exeter University, gaining a BSc (Hons) in Biosciences. Soon after I completed my PGCE at Sussex University. Both of my parents were teachers and I knew I was drawn towards the profession. I have taught in the UK for 6 years at a State Comprehensive in the South of England that was deemed ‘Outstanding in all areas’ in 2013. I have also helped to run Duke of Edinburgh Award and coached sports teams. At St Andrews I have been co-coach for the U15 Girls basketball team and have supported them playing in tournaments in Bangkok. In my spare time I am a keen diver and photographer, two pursuits for which Thailand has plenty to explore. In the past I have also been involved in conservation projects and would like to start to get involved with conservation at St Andrews. I am also a keen diver, photographer and musician, among other interests. I have tried to encourage my students to "give it a go", not letting opportunities pass them by.

It is the first school I have worked at where "happy" is in the mission statement and a focus for school life. A happy learning environment is so important to student progress.
