Robert Dolan


Assistant Head of Primary

Robert Dolan
BA Drama,
Postgraduate Certificate in Education

I grew up in a town called Bolton which is in the north of England. I have always had a huge desire to travel and I am very happy to now call Nanjing my new home.

I studied Drama at Lincoln University and graduated in 2005. I then went on to do a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Bangor University. Since then, I have spent many years teaching a wide age range of children from all kinds of backgrounds in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. In recent years, I have found myself taking on increasing responsibilities as Key Stage Leader in previous school and now Assistant Head of Primary School.

In my spare time, I love to explore new surroundings and I have a colossal passion for all things theatrical! You will frequently find me popping to the theatre to be entertained and thrilled or writing my own plays which I am sure will one day rival Andrew Lloyd Webber’s.

My classroom is a lively and exciting place to learn and I enjoy nothing more than watching my students thrive and flourish.
