Staff Profile: Deirdre Grimshaw

Deirdre Grimshaw

Head Teacher, Junior Campus

With a family background of teachers,  teaching was always going to be the career choice for me. Having taught for close to 25 years with almost 20 years teaching internationally, I am drawn to the new experiences of every single day, the children and their unique personalities and the chance to be part of their rich learning experience. Teaching internationally brings an added dimension that as a parent and a teacher has opened a wealth of new experiences for both me and my own children.
