Katy Phillipson

I have a degree in Contemporary Art from Manchester Metropolitan University and a PGCE in Primary Education from the University of Chester. BSB is my third international school since qualifying and I have mainly taught children from Key Stage 1 in the UK, Shanghai and Suzhou in China.


I have been teaching the English National Curriculum for the last 5 years and I particularly enjoy facilitating child-initiated learning where children can learn through investigations and inquiry.  I  aim to make sure learning is linked in a cross-curricular manner so that children have the opportunity to apply skills and improve understanding in a real life context. I have been working at BSB for 3 years and have loved meeting students from all over the world and helping them learn.
