Staff Profiles: Marc Tillotson

Marc Tillotson

Head of Science

After an undergraduate degree in Genetics, I completed my teacher training at the turn of the millennium; part of the last cohort through the University of Liverpool. Since that time I have taught in state and independent schools in the UK, a state school in Australia and an international school in South Korea. Shortly after completing my PGCE, I took a year out to return to university to train as a genetic counsellor, but found that I missed the classroom too much.

I spent 7 years at my last school leading a successful department and became a chartered science teacher during that time. Although a biologist by preference, I have also taught A level chemistry in two previous posts and physics to GCSE. I believe schools such as this offer a true international education and help shape global citizens of the future.

My wife teaches in the Primary School and my children also attend the school – it’s a real family affair. I am a keen athlete and have been running for many years - even during the summer! I also enjoy inspiring others to get involved in the sport. I have a great love of music and a pretty diverse taste and enjoy discovering some great Chinese bands at numerous live venues in Guangzhou.
