Owen Doherty in class

IB Tutor, English Teacher

I first came to Warsaw to teach English as a foreign language, and worked for many schools, institutions, and companies, including the British Council and Copernicus High School. I also worked as an Assistant Director of Studies at a private language school, where my duties involved course design and teacher training and I was an oral examiner for the Cambridge University suite of English language examinations for a number of years. After returning to the United Kingdom and obtaining my PGCE from the University of Plymouth, I taught secondary and A-level English in state schools in Plymouth, Exeter, and Shifnal, before relocating to Warsaw and obtaining my current position at The British School.

I am interested in all types of literature, particularly American, and am a keen player and supporter of football. I try to keep fit by going to the gym when time permits, usually to work off the result of my Saturday evenings, which I tend to spend in one of Warsaw’s many fine restaurants. When in the United Kingdom, I love to watch live theatre performances and hike in the Shropshire countryside.


To me, the central concept of  HPL I am most excited about is the idea that we, as teachers,  don’t label students as lacking ability in any subject and that we should expect all students to be able to reach the highest attainment levels possible. I am confident HPL will enable me to fulfil one of my most important roles of a teacher: to constantly challenge and change students’ perceptions of what they are able to achieve.
