    In 2012 I decided to take the leap into international education after teaching in the UK. I moved out to Guangzhou, fell in love with the city and have lived here happily ever since. I have lead EAL provision across the Primary and Early Years phases at the British School of Guangzhou for the last 3 years and am delighted to take on the role the Assistant Head of Primary, responsible for languages and cultures.

  • Shaila Chainani

    Head of Secondary EAL

    Shaila Chainani

    When I was in university, I would have never imagined pursuing the profession of a teacher. Back then, banking and finance held a lot of fascination for me and hence I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, specialising in this field. After working at HSBC- Singapore for two years and staring at a computer screen all day, realisation struck and I started questioning what I really wanted out of my professional life. It is then that my journey as a teacher began.

    EAL Teacher

    William Tame

    Many years ago, after leaving university I taught a group of teachers an art lesson in my local community. I felt very relaxed and passionate about sharing my knowledge and I realised at the time that communicating effectively using clear and precise language structures made it easy for the teachers to follow. Those teachers loved learning new things in my first ever lesson and it was the first stepping stone towards a career in teaching.

    EAL Teacher

    Neil Reedie

    I came to Guangzhou to teach for a year, earn a bit of money then go off traveling. I very quickly fell in love with the job and city though, and have now been here teaching EAL for over ten years. The majority of that time was spent at Guangwai Wai Xiao – a highly regarded school attached the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies – I was fortunate to be part of great team, and together we helped build an excellent EAL department over the last nine years. However, I felt I had learned all I could at the school and was desperate for a new challenge. It was an extremely easy decision to join the British School as I believe it to be the best school in the city, and I can’t wait to join the team!
