Head of Secondary
“Outstanding, thoughtful leadership" - Schools Compared Review
I am an extremely proud Head of the Secondary, at GEMS International School. One of the leading IB World Schools in Dubai.
I moved to Dubai, and into the GEMS group of schools, 7 years ago with my wife and we have since added to our family with our beautiful daughter who attends GIS.
I am from Derbyshire, in the UK, where I worked in an outstanding Academy Secondary School. I worked for 8 amazing years, at that school in a number of different middle and senior leadership roles. My scope in Leadership has been varied from growing and developing schools to growing and developing young leaders within them, both areas I value.
My passion within leading and teaching is and always will be, providing the highest level of provision for the children in my care and helping them to realize their potential in all areas of their lives. I truly believe that a school should be the center of any community and that parental/family involvement is a key feature of a successful school.
I am an advocate of personal development of both staff and students. I believe it is essential that the adults involved in the lives of young people should be models of lifelong learning and an ambition to always improve. This is the culture that we strive for amongst the GIS family, a culture I would invite you to be part of.
