Sophie joined BIS in August 2021, having previously worked at a preparatory school in Notting Hill, London. Sophie completed her degree and PGCE in Cardiff and alongside her studies she worked at several different swim schools. During her PGCE, Sophie taught in a British International School in Valencia, Spain where she successfully developed a whole-school swimming programme that was integrated into the PE curriculum. Sophie began her swimming career aged 7; dedicating herself to daily training sessions to develop and perfect her ability in the water. Sophie’s passion for swimming and her ability to inspire her peers was recognised from an early age. She has captained both her club and County teams, won regional medals and competed several times at National and British Championships.
Becoming a swimming teacher at age 14, she has experienced and witnessed the profound effect that sport can have on one’s life and she is looking forward to sharing her passion with the students at BIS. Outside of school, Sophie enjoys travelling and experiencing different cultures and cuisines, socialising with friends, and taking part in sporting activities.
