Amy Murphy

Head of Secondary

BA (Hons) English, University of Leicester

PGCE Secondary English, University of Leicester

Amy started her teaching career in 2002, teaching English in a large 14-19 comprehensive school in Leicestershire. From here, she moved to teach in an 11-18 state boarding school in Wymondham, Norfolk, where she was also boarding house staff and Careers Coordinator. She made her first move to teach internationally in 2007, relocating to Dubai. During her five years there, she became Head of English and was seconded to the senior leadership team. Following a three year period of teaching in the UK, Amy moved to teach internationally again in 2015.

Amy first joined NAE in Thailand in 2015 as Assistant Head. She moved to a sister NAE school in Vietnam in 2017 as Deputy Head Teacher: Curriculum & Learning, before joining BISB in January 2022 as Head of Secondary. She has taken full advantage of the opportunities offered through Nord Anglia University and has completed the three-term Senior Leadership Programme. 

Amy is committed to supporting students to be the best version of themselves, in every respect, so that they are enabled and empowered to go out into the world and make a positive difference. As Head of Secondary, she is excited to work with all members of the BISB community to ensure that the student experience at BISB is exceptional. She is ambitious for students and staff alike and firmly believes that learning never stops – for any of us.

In her spare time, Amy enjoys spending time with her family, running, cycling, cooking, and travelling. As an English teacher, she loves to read and her favourite writers are Margaret Atwood, Donna Tartt and Kazuo Ishiguro.
