Ms Charlotte Giles

Head of History & Nord Anglia Teaching Fellow for History

After completing her PGCE at the University of Huddersfield in 2009, Charlotte began teaching in Wetherby, remaining there for four years. In 2014 Charlotte moved to the British School of Guangzhou in China as the Head of History. Having taught there successfully for three years, she was appointed as the Nord Anglia Teaching Fellow for History, and remains in this additional position at BSKL.

 

I began teaching in the UK at Wetherby High School, where I was a history and sociology teacher for 5 years. I then moved to Guangzhou, China as Head of History. While working there, I applied for, and was successfully appointed as, Nord Anglia's Teaching Fellow for History. I then moved to BSKL as Head of History 3 years ago.

In my personal life I love reading, keeping fit and socialising. I spend time at the gym, where I enjoy lifting weights and have recently begun to enjoy running, with a Game of Thrones podcast to help keep me going. I am a history teacher first and foremost because I love my subject and see endless value in it. Teaching students about the past opens so many doors to the present, while helping students to learn a discipline that demands rigour and careful thought.

To me student happiness means being confident enough and feeling safe enough to take risks in the classroom and to open up discussions about their learning.
