    primary teacher helping year 3 students in maths class

Matthew Pavey

I am really looking forward to be part of the Year 6 team at NAS Dubai.

I’m from a town called Tonbridge in Kent, UK. I attended Bath Spa University where I completed my degree, and later, my PGCE to become a teacher.

I completed a BSc Honours degree in Environmental Science (joint honours Biology and Geography), graduating in 2009. After I graduated I spent some time as a Learning Support Assistant at a Secondary school in my home town. My time there confirmed that I wanted to become a teacher. I later completed my PGCE in Primary Education.
I love to teach and after qualifying, I taught for four years in the UK in Independent and State schools, before spending 2 years here in the UAE at Kent College Dubai. I particularly enjoy working with Year 5 and 6.

I am an avid rugby fan, I used to play as Prop at a range of levels for my local team, Tonbridge Juddians RFC. Unluckily, a knee injury has stopped me from returning to the pitch. I still love to coach the sport and watch both England and my favourite team: Wasps, play.

Along with Rugby I am well known as being a passionate ‘geek.’ I love films, playing guitar (badly), listening to audiobooks, reading comic books and playing video games on my various consoles. I have recently picked up a new hobby too, becoming a qualified Open-Water Scuba Diver, which I love. I also enjoy traveling, I recently celebrated my 30th birthday by Dog Sledding in Finland and seeing the Northern Lights!
