Andrew grew up in Poole, on the south coast of the United Kingdom. He studied at Winchester University, where he completed a four year course in BA Hons in Primary Education with a specialism in Design and Technology. With a career in education spanning 18 years, Andrew has developed his knowledge of curriculum and assessment both in the UK and UAE, carefully adapting learning opportunities to meet the context and needs of the students.
He has taken on a range of leadership positions, most recently as founding Head of Primary at a new school in Abu Dhabi and is excited to be joining Reach British School as the Head of Primary. He strongly believes that each student has their own journey, developing skills and knowledge to engage in an ever changing world as global citizens.
Andrew enjoys working with a team of educators to enhance learning opportunities for students, ensuring high quality teaching and learning. He has a passion to inspire and empower teachers to develop as leaders, fostering a culture of confident risk takers and professionals who are challenged. This is truly successful when these characteristics are cascaded down into the students they teach so they also become inspired leaders.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys riding his motorcycle, travelling and spending quality time with his friends and family.
