Lorraine Bastone

Deputy Head of Campus, Primary, IPC Leader and Year 6 Teacher

I have been teaching for 20 years now, spending the first ten of these in the UK, in Gravesend before returning to the West Country, Somerset where I now call home. 

My first international post was Kuwait where I spent 7 years before moving nearer home to Warsaw, Poland.  In my previous role I was Learning Leader for Year 6 and KS2 English.  

I have various hobbies, I love music and help to organise the Years 4, 5, and 6 production each year and with various choirs I am a member of.  I love going to the cinema (they have excellent A/C) and run the staff movie club as well as the afterschool Years 2 and 3 film club, any excuse to watch some Disney in school.

Having completed my teaching degree in Wales in 1996 I returned home to Surrey to start my career.  My first teaching position was in Gravesend, Kent  in a Church of England school with a very multicultural population.  My second teaching job was again a Church of England school this time down in the West Country.  My time in these schools allowed me to experience teaching a variety of year groups and positions of responsibility ranging from subject leader to Deputy Head.

After 10 years of teaching in the UK and craving adventure I decided that teaching abroad was something I would like to try and applied for jobs in the Middle East, this found me teaching Year 6 in Kuwait and being the Year Leader for seven years. 

Wanting to come back towards England I made the decision to teach in Europe which led me to The British School, Warsaw where I spent four years. 

I am a crafty person and have a variety of hobbies. I like to do cross stitch (it’s very calming), make cards and wedding stationery sets and love to dabble in the kitchen.  I like to sing and joined the primary, senior and community choirs at The British School.
