In my role as Assistant Head of Secondary - Curriculum and Operations, I bring my analytical skills to the Secondary Leadership Team. My speciality is in the field of data and how to use that to improve student learning, enabling them to reach their full potential. In the curriculum role, I will bring my experiences developed in Dubai, where I ran whole school academic mentoring, pupil tracking and coordinated Teaching and Learning initiatives for staff.
I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BSc (Hons) Mathematics in 2001 and went on to train and teach in the same city. In 2007 my wife and I decided to move on to international teaching. We spent 10 years working in Dubai at an international British school. There I led a Mathematics Department through a period of growth, being recognised by the UAE Government as one of the most successful schools in the country in the Mathematics PISA tests.
I have been teaching on the IB Diploma Programme for over 10 years at all levels of Mathematics, although I specialise in Standard Level. I have a wealth of experience with the Internal Assessment aspect of the course and enjoy sharing that with all of our Year 12 and 13 students.
