Mr. Challenor found his love of teaching through coaching rugby. Prior to teaching, he was a Special Constable with the Metropolitan Police. He started his teaching career as a Teaching Assistant at an inner London state primary school. He then continued in the same school via the TeachFirst program where he was initially a classroom teacher before progressing to Head of Year 5. He also worked as the International Schools Coordinator, taking on the responsibility of nurturing a global outlook to learning and encouraging an understanding of tolerance, humility and respect throughout the school.
He is entering his fourth year teaching at Nord Anglia and is Head of Year 4 and has recently completed a Masters in Leadership from University College London. Mr Challenor promotes a values based classroom where character development is an integral part of a child's learning.
Outside of the classroom, he is a rugby coach and enjoys taking part in all types of sports both playing and watching. He also enjoys eating out, exploring new places and learning about the culture and history of different people.
