    Science Teacher, STEAM Coordinator & Year 9 Tutor

    Eloise Hoyland

    I have loved science since I was at school which lead me to choosing a degree in Biological Sciences.  I was lucky enough to study at Oxford University which was a challenging but incredible experience.  Following my BSc I did a Masters in Control of Infectious Disease at LSHTM in London and a PGCE in Birmingham where I got my first role as science teacher.  I have a passion for horses and horse-riding so I then took a year out to work at a dressage yard in Hertfordshire where I gained my BHS Stage 2 but was keen to get back into teaching following this.

    We arrived in Warsaw in March 1993, with our three small children. I had previously taught Chemistry in a large comprehensive school in central London for 6 years. I joined The British School Warsaw in September 1996 in a part-time science role and have been teaching here ever since. I am delighted to have been part of the school’s growth from primary, to secondary and IB. I strive to give the students an exciting learning experience which helps them achieve the best that they can.

  • Ross Clarke

    Music Teacher

    Ross Clarke

    I studied at Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester (UK) and then continued on to gain a Bachelor of Music (honours) at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Following that I worked in London and Wales as a teacher and trumpet player, playing for various orchestras and ensembles and working in schools in London. I was also the Musical Director of the North Powys Youth Band at this time and additionally adjudicated in the Urdd Eisteddfod (Welsh arts festival).  I have an ABRSM Diploma in Trumpet performance and went on to gain a Postgraduate Certificate of Education at  the University of Nottingham, UK.

     

    From 2012 I spent seven years in Nur-Sultan (previously Astana), Kazakhstan where I taught for five years at the British School  - Haileybury Astana - and also worked as co-principal trumpet at the Astana Opera House playing in the orchestra. I took up the post of Director of Music at Haileybury Astana and built the Music Department at the school - introducing a Junior and Senior Orchestra, a Kazakh Folk Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, and three new choirs. These ensembles embarked on many performances around the city and even went on tour to the UK. In 2013, I formed the Astana Music Society. This involved a community choir, folk ensembles, chamber and jazz ensembles playing at many venues across Kazakhstan for various concerts and events, including charity and diplomatic events. I am a great fan of Eastern Europe, but Poland was an undiscovered adventure for me. The Music Department seems very vibrant and I can’t wait to join the large family of Nord Anglia schools in such a vibrant city.
