  • Richard Marwood

    Assistant Head (Our Standards)

    Richard Marwood

    I have spent the majority of my life living in Devon in a small town called Paignton. I attended a local Primary, as well as a grammar school, before attending Marjon University in Plymouth. Here I gained my Bachelor of Education teaching qualification with a 2:1 degree classification. Immediately after finishing my degree I took the decision to take a month out and live in Kenya, teaching in a charity school alongside Kenyan teachers where I implemented parts of the British curriculum to young Kenyan children. I found this experience hugely rewarding and it gave me further desire to begin my own teaching career.

    Year 3 Teacher

    Andrew Cunliffe

    I trained and qualified as a Primary School teacher in Southampton, UK and initially worked in Year 3 and Year 4.  I have always been internationally minded and my desire to combine my love of teaching with the opportunity to work overseas was an obvious choice. I have worked overseas for 15 years and am fortunate to have worked in well-established and developing schools in Egypt, Thailand, Kuwait and Vietnam before arriving in Guangzhou.

  • Grace Huntley

    Year 3 Teacher

    Grace Huntley

    After graduating from Salford university with a Journalism and English qualification, I went on an 18 month adventure through 3 continents. The trip saw some interesting jobs such as selling raffle tickets and working in the security team onboard a cruise ship. Arriving home, I needed to find work and so joined a teaching agency as a teaching assistant and I fell in love with life in school. I enjoyed working with children so much that after a year I got my PGCE with the London East Teacher Training Alliance.

    After completing my degree in journalism at the University of Essex, I spent a year in China working as a teaching assistant at the British School of Beijing. It was here that I quickly fell in love with educating and inspiring young people and decided upon a career in teaching. 

    I completed my PGCE through the University of Buckingham and worked as a teacher in Beijing for a further five years. After six amazing years in China, I wanted to explore another part of the world and so moved to the British College of Brazil.
