    Head of Secondary

    Alison Fox

    My degree is from Leeds University where I studied English and French.  The course incorporated  studying at the University of Grenoble and the Free University in Amsterdam, giving me my first taste for living  overseas.  I began my teaching career over 12 years ago and have taught in both international and UK schools.  I taught in the Nord Anglia school in Bratislava for over four years and before arriving in Warsaw was teaching French in a Grammar school in the UK where I was also Head of Work Related Learning and Careers Education Information and Guidance. During my time in Warsaw I have been Deputy Subject Leader in English and Head of Year 7.

    Deputy Head Teacher Academic

    Alfons Vinent

    I completed my PGCE in Secondary Mathematics from the University of Cumbria more than 16 years ago and remained in the North West of England where I started my teaching career by working in two state schools, St Wilfrid’s Church of England school in Blackburn and Rhyddings Business and Enterprise school in Accrington. After several years of teaching in the UK, I accepted a position in an international school in Qatar where I spent six years and then moved to the British International School of Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia where I spent another six years and occupied several positions of responsibility, from Continuing Professional Development and Newly Qualified Teacher Coordinator to Deputy and Acting Headteacher of the Senior School and Sixth Form. In 2019 I achieved my National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and became a fully qualified British School Overseas inspector.

    I strongly believe that every child, regardless of their background or ability, has the right to access good quality education and to be pushed to achieve the best they can. This principle directs everything that I always do in school.

    Deputy Head Pastoral

    Alexandra Hands

    I completed a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Bristol graduating in 2009.  While I was an undergraduate I worked during the holidays as an outdoor activities instructor and this gave me the motivation to train to become a teacher.  I began my teaching career in London in 2010 where I taught at Buxton School for four years. I then moved to The British School Kathmandu where I continued teaching science, as well as progressing first to head of Key Stage 3 and then Assistant Head Teacher: Head of Key Stage 5.
