This is my seventh year at TIS and the first as the Secondary Principal, having previously occupied the position of Middle School Vice-Principal for four years. After graduating from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science and a PGCE in Secondary Physical Education 11 years ago, I moved away from Wales, and since then I’ve lived and worked in China, Hong Kong and Macau. I was Head of PE at my previous school for 4 years. I have a MSc in Educational Leadership and Management through the University of Portsmouth and I love to continue to learn and apply my learning in school. I strongly believe that Education should be holistic and focus on improving the “whole” child. Developing resilience and building character are fundamental to a child’s development and participation in co curricular activities and service/volunteer activities can help to grow tomorrow’s leaders.
