Jude Penson

Vice Principal / Deputy Head Teacher

I graduated from Aberdeen University, Scotland, with a Master’s Degree in Education in 2004.  My original degree is from Strathclyde University and I have been teaching since 1993, with my formative years’ experience being in my hometown in Scotland. I participated in a Fulbright exchange in academic year 1997-98, which had a huge impact on me both professionally and personally. 

Just over two years later, I moved to Houston to work with the British Schools of America. I have been with the schools ever since, having moved to Charlotte to help open the school here. It is an absolute pleasure to work at the British International School of Charlotte. I can put my hand on my heart and tell you that I learn every single day and that the team of people that I work with are amazing. It is a privilege to work with a group of educators who are committed to the growth of our students.

I live close to the school with my growing family! My husband and I have two gorgeous shepherd mix dogs who are adorable... and slightly larger than we imagined when we picked them up as puppies from Greenville Humane Society in August of 2013! Our son, Luke, was born on May 30th, 2014. As much as I am proud of my Scottish roots, I am also proud to be part of a Southern family.

The British International School of Charlotte is different from other schools that I have taught in because of the composition and mindset of our team. We employ the cream of the crop and each and every staff member is encouraged to learn, to share expertise, and to have an open mindset so that our students make amazing progress.
