Kay Pickard

Teacher of Geography and History

After completing my MA exploring the relationship between religion and development I went to work in a women's microfinance charity in India. I decided whilst I was there that I wanted to become a teacher.

I returned to the UK and completed my PGCE at the University of Cambridge and took a job in London. I then went to work at a school which specialised in project-based learning, leading the Geography Department. In this role I collaborated with consultants from ‘High-Tech High’, other departments and experts in the field to make the learning come alive. I led field work trips and coached girls’ sports including netball and athletics.

Since leaving London I have been working in Bangkok, introducing the iGCSE Geography course at my school there, and mentoring PGCSE students from around the world. I decided to move to British School of Guangzhou as I was drawn to working in a larger school connected to a growing partnership.

Like most Geography teachers, in my spare time I enjoy being outside. I like walking, camping, swimming and looking at wildlife. I take pictures of birds and make them into linocuts. I love travelling and exploring remote places, as well as trying new food.
