Gary Lawson

Gary Lawson at the British International School of Houston

Athletics Director

I have over a decade of teaching experience and over 20 years of soccer coaching experience. I graduated from Buckinghamshire Chilterns University with BA (Hons) in Leisure Management & Sport Studies followed by a PGCE in Physical Education from London Metropolitan University. I also hold an Advanced National Diploma, a National Diploma and a Goalkeeping Level One Diploma from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and hold a United States Soccer Federation Coaching License. I've played Semi-Professional football in England and began my coaching career at Watford FC before moving to the US to coach soccer.  I was the Chair of Physical Education and Girls Varsity Head Coach at Brooklyn Friends School, before joining Nord Anglia Education as Athletics Director at our sister school in New York. I have also served as Head Women's soccer coach at St Joseph's College Brooklyn (NCAA DIII) and was selected to the `Sports 40 under 40' class of 2018 in the Coaches and Athletics Director Magazine highlighting as one of the top coaches in the US. 

I am delighted to join BIS Houston as the new Athletic Director and would like to thank Mr Wilson and the hiring committee for giving me the opportunity to further develop the athletic programme. I am truly excited by the enormous potential for growing a passionate sporting community to further our BIS Houston mission through athletics. I am deeply committed to working together with all stakeholders to elevate the pride and culture of the Bulldog family.
