Ella Bashford

Ella Bashford

Year 4 Class Teacher, 4EB (Full Time)

Ella graduated with a BSc Honours degree in Human Biology from Loughborough University before completing her PGCE at Goldsmiths University, London.

Prior to coming to Singapore, Ella taught in an outer London school for five years where she was responsible for leading maths across the whole school. She is passionate about providing engaging and challenging lessons which encourage children of all abilities to become independent and enthusiastic learners.

Having always loved school herself, Ella aspires to having the same positive impact on the children she teaches as she had from many of her own teachers growing up. This motivates her to create lessons which will inspire children to have a lifelong thirst for learning.

A keen netball player, Ella enjoyed taking an after school netball club for Key Stage 2 children at her previous school. Outside of work, Ella and her husband enjoy travelling and visiting new places. They love experiencing new people, cultures and food! One of her favourite places to visit is Sweden where she has family, giving her a chance to practice speaking in her second language. Prior to working at Dover Court, Ella enjoyed visiting Singapore but just visiting wasn’t enough. She is delighted to be able to combine her love for teaching and travel here.
