Thomas Magson

Head of PE

Now in my second year in Beijing, I am extremely proud to be leading the provision of PE and Sport here at BSB Sanlitun. BSB Sanlitun has provided me with the platform to teach Physical Education in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. An opportunity I grasped with both hands. I hope to pass on my sporting knowledge, passion and enthusiasm to the children of BSB Sanlitun.

Previously, I taught PE in the UK for several years throughout both Primary and Secondary education. This provided me with the experience of teaching across all 4 key stages of the English National Curriculum, including GCSE. After graduating, I completed my teacher training through Teesside University’s PGCE Programme at High Tunstall College of Science. I then went on to lead the delivery of PE at Grange Primary School and managed the schools extra-curricular programme.

Outside of the working environment I remain a sport-orientated individual. Although a keen all-round sportsman, my primary sport is football. I have competed at semi-professional level and represented the British Colleges Football Team in 2008. I currently play football for a local club in Beijing and am also a fitness fanatic, where I enjoy working out up to 5 times a week.
