    Assistant Head (Our Staff) & South Park Campus Manager

    Stephen Follows

    After completing my Zoology degree at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, I first worked in a school as a special needs teaching assistant. This initial experience inspired a passion for working with children and I began my PGCE to become a teacher as soon as possible working within Year 2 & 6 classes. Upon completion, I returned to the school which I had previously worked at but as a Year 5 teacher.

    Year 1 Teacher & Learning Leader

    Collette Bowness

    I trained and qualified as a Primary School teacher from Trinity College, Carmarthen, University of Wales. Initially I worked in Key Stage 2 at a Junior school in South London. During my 9 years in London, I had the opportunity to lead year group teams, develop numeracy and ICT programmes and undertook action research projects on reading development. I got married in 2001 and decided to follow my dream of teaching overseas and moved to Garden International School in Kuala Lumpur to join their Senior Leadership Team.

    Year 1 Teacher

    Vicky Franklin

    I studied Sociology and Criminology at the University of Brighton and obtained TESOL certification in Spain, before beginning my English-teaching career in South Korea. I quickly realised how much I love teaching, and returned to the UK to gain Qualified Teacher Status in Primary Education. I then packed my bags once again and set off to Beijing, where I have been teaching in Reception for the past two years. Although I truly love Beijing, I was keen to experience life in another area of China, and so after thorough research, I landed upon Guangzhou and indeed, BSG!

  • Early Years Teacher - Chris Eales

    Year 1 Teacher

    Christopher Eales

    I have been a teacher in Guangzhou for over five years, working primarily in Early Years education. For the first two years, I managed a kindergarten, later moving on to concurrently managing a training centre as well. As someone who continually wants to improve and develop as a teacher, moving to BSG was an obvious choice, as for me it is the best educational institution that Guangzhou has to offer.

    Before starting university, I worked at The British School of Beijing as a Teaching Assistant. Here, I not only developed a keen interest in education, but also thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in a completely new culture and seeing amazing parts of the world. I returned to England to complete a Bachelors Degree, followed by a PGCert in Education Practice. In the following year, I became a qualified teacher when I completed a PGDip in Primary teaching.
