Staff Profile: Andy James


Year 5 Teacher / Maths Leader

Originally an accountant in London, I was persuaded to change my career after enjoying voluntarily helping local schools with a lunchtime reading project. Teaching has proved to be far more enjoyable and personally rewarding than accountancy and Vietnam has become a home for myself and my family now. 

BA (Hons) English, PGCE (Upper Primary) University of London, Goldsmiths College

Andy joined BIS in August 2006 as a Year 3 teacher and subsequently taught in Year 4 before moving in 2011 to join the Year 5 team. Previously he taught at an international school in Khao Yai, Thailand. Andy enjoys playing football, trekking in remote areas, playing chess, reading and playing with his newly born son.
