I am delighted to be the Interim Head of School for EIS Moscow South West. I am originally from the South of England but moved to the Midlands nearly 20 years ago. After a successful career in publishing sales I trained as a teacher and spent the first nine years of my career working with children with additional needs as both a teacher of Humanities and as an Assistant Headteacher.
I moved to Mongolia in 2017 to take up the post of Head of Secondary at the British School of Ulaanbaatar. As a member of the senior leadership team I l helped to lead the school through a successful COBIS inspection which saw BSU become one of the first schools in the world to attain Patron's Accreditation. In 2018 I was promoted to Academic Director which involved managing the daily running of the whole school, from early years up to A Level.
I have a BA Hons degree in History and a PGCE in Secondary education, from the Universities of Newcastle and Durham respectively. In 2016 I gained an MA in Medieval History from the University of Lincoln. As part of my role here at Moscow South West I will be teaching History to Secondary Students.
I look forward to working with staff, parents and students to ensure that academic standards continue to rise. My goal is to uphold the key values of Orbital Education in providing a safe, challenging and happy learning environment for all of our students.
