Personal Statement


Personal Statement

Having trained and then taught in the UK at the start of my career, I have spent 23 years in various international schools across Europe: in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Bosnia and Slovakia. In recent years I have held leadership positions at the United World College in Mostar, the British International School, Bratislava and St George's in Neuchâtel. I returned to the UK in September, 2012 to assume the role of Principal of the Europa School UK in Culham.

An experienced Mathematics teacher, I remain closely involved in the subject, particularly as a founder member of the International Schools Mathematics Teachers' Foundation and through various teacher workshops with Technology for Secondary Mathematics, ECIS and InThinking. I was also part of the review team for the current IB mathematics programme.  

My spell in Mostar was particularly rewarding, helping with a project to bring together students from the divided communities of country and other parts of the world torn by civil strife. We also provided training for local teachers as part of a broader project of educational reform throughout the Adriatic region.

With a French wife and dual-national daughters, I am an enthusiastic advocate of the benefits of multi-lingual education and I oversee the Europa School's offer of education through English and either French or German, with the languages split 50/50 over the week.

In rare moments of relaxation, I will be caught sipping a glass of Barbera while looking out over a beautiful scene in the Apennines.
