Ms Katie Childs

Head of Chemistry

Ms Katie Childs has joined BSKL from Canada via United Kingdom. She began her teaching career at George Heriot's School in Edinburgh where she earned her QTS before moving to England and joining a vibrant and enthusiastic science department at Cheam High School (an Ofsted Outstanding school). During her time at Cheam High School Katie contributed greatly to the running of a very successful Chemistry department and developing the delivery of the A-level course. She then spent two years teaching at Duff Miller College in South Kensington (independent sixth form and GCSE college). Here she became Head of Chemistry and implemented the new A-level reform. 

I completed my NQT year at George Heriot's School in Edinburgh teaching Chemistry. I then moved from Scotland to England and began teaching at Cheam High School. Cheam was an Ofsted Outstanding School which I worked at for 4 years as a Chemistry and Physics teacher from KS3 through to A-Level in both subjects. Finally, I moved to Duff Miller College in London to teach both Chemistry and Physics to primarily A-level students before moving to Malaysia to work at BSKL.

My favourite hobbies include travelling with my husband and now our son, playing board games, running and hiking. My favourite sports are baseball/softball, skiing, running, hiking but I will give any sport a go! My reason for becoming a teacher is because when I was a student in high school I had some very inspirational Science teachers who not only fuelled my passion for their subjects but also my desire to be that person for someone else by becoming a teacher myself.

In my role at BSKL student happiness is knowing that they are comfortable enough to make mistakes and learn from them, to enjoy the subject and be eager to show up. Our students are a fantastic example of this and it is not surprising that it forms the foundation of our student success.
