  • Anna Bennett Leader of Learning Individuals and Society

    Anna Bennett

    Head of Humanities

    Anna Bennett

    I have taught at BISH since 2007. I grew up in Exeter, Devon and loved it so much there I went to the University of Exeter where I obtained a BA Hons in Geography. Following that I went to the University of Bristol to undertake a PGCE in Humanities with Geography as my main subject.

    My main geographical interests are development and population studies and I was lucky enough to broaden my experience in this area in 2006 when I undertook a 2 week teacher study visit to India, teaching in under-privileged state schools and working with locals in a local village as well as completing a study to compare the level of development between the rural area and the nearest big city; Bangalore. I believe first hand experiences such as this are the best way for anyone to develop their understanding of different places, so my goal to develop the opportunity for students in BISH to have this kind of experience.

    I joined BISH in August 2011 as a History teacher and Extended Essay coordinator. I also teach another of my passions Economics at IB Diploma.

    I graduated from the University of Lancaster with an Honours Degree in History before studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in History and Citizenship. I became interested in the international education field following my involvement in the Comenius Project that works to bring young people together from all over the European Community in order to develop internationalism and multi-cultural understanding. One of the wonderful things about BISH is the opportunity to experience this daily!

    Teacher of Humanities and Head of Year 9

    Ruth Capper

    have been teaching Humanities for 14 years. While taking part in the Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program, I exchanged my teaching role in Oxford for one teaching Social Studies in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This experience motivated me to consider future teaching opportunities overseas and, in 2011, was appointed at the British International School of Houston. I’ve served as Head of Years 7, 8, 10 & 11 and have greatly enjoyed being part of the pastoral team and am very much looking forward to being Head of Year 9 at BISH next year!

    I began my teaching career teaching at a large comprehensive school in the City of Oxford, UK where I was Head of Geography for seven years.

    I hold a BA Hons degree in Geography from Oxford Brookes University and I also have a PGCE in Secondary Geography.
