Ashley Thorpe

Ashley Thorpe at the British International School of Houston

Assistant Head of Secondary & IB DP Coordinator

Prior to my virtual year at BISH, I have spent three years at an international school in Switzerland where I was the Secondary School Principal and IB Coordinator. Before this, I worked for 10 years in an international school in Dubai, UAE, as an IB Coordinator. I have also taught in North Carolina, USA, and several schools in the UK.

Having joined BISH in August 2020, I spent last year as a virtual teacher experiencing BISH through a computer screen from almost 5,000 miles away, combined with a six-hour time difference between Katy and the UK. Despite this what shone through was both the passionate and dedicated staff at the school and the wonderful students. Along with my wife Rachel and our little boy Indiana, I look forward to finally arriving in Texas and meeting you all in person, until then please feel free to reach out to me via my school email.
