    Hayley Trowbridge

    I am delighted to join BSG as a Year 3 Teacher. I obtained a Bachelor of Primary Education in 2001 and have over 13 years of experience teaching Year 3 to Year 7 students. Guangzhou is my third international posting within China, having taught at The British School of Beijing and Dulwich College in Shanghai. Back home in Australia, I have been fortunate to teach in many schools across Western Australia; from Kununurra at the very north of the state, to Exmouth on the Ningaloo Coast, as well as both independent and state schools in Perth.

  • 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.

    I grew up in Birmingham, England but moved to Sheffield to study Media and Communications. After graduating with a BA (Hons), I moved to The Netherlands to work in the shipping industry. Whilst there, I met Justine who would later became my wife. Following a move to Australia, I retrained as a primary school teacher and obtained a BA in Teaching at the University of Western Sydney. A few years later I studied for a CELTA certificate (English for speakers of other languages). I taught for several years at schools in Australia before moving to Bhutan in the Himalayas, for a year, to teach as a volunteer.

    Year 3 Teacher & Learning Leader

    Christopher Thomas

    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.
