I graduated from Bristol University with a degree in mathematics and went on to complete my PGCE a year after. I then went on to teach in a girls’ grammar school in London where I took on the roles of Deputy Head of Maths as well as Head of Year 7, and in 2016 received a Kent Teacher of the Year Award after being nominated by my students. I also had the opportunity to lead a group of students on an expedition to Borneo where we visited the orangutan sanctuary, camped in the jungle, and spent some time in an impoverished village to renovate their facilities.
I grew up in Worcestershire and moved to London after my degree. I am an avid Birmingham City Football Club fan, I enjoy playing video and board games, reading science fiction, as well as camping and hiking. My wife and I love to travel, especially in Europe and the US. On our first visit to California we saw our first ever baseball game and fell in love with the Chicago Cubs. After visiting Chicago in 2018 we dreamed of moving our lives there and this dream became a reality a year later.
I was attracted to work for Nord Anglia and BISC after seeing the enthusiasm of the teachers, and appreciating the philosophy of the school to personalize learning for each individual student. There is also a great sense of global community and collaboration.
