Having gained a first in Physics from Southampton University, I initially worked in Research and Development with Pilkington plc. What this period brought into focus was that I missed working with people, and especially missed the opportunities I had as an undergraduate to teach younger students.
Completing my PGCE at Bristol University, I went on to spend the next twenty-five years teaching Physics at independent schools in the UK. In addition to becoming a Head of Department and Faculty, most recently I served as a Housemaster and then Deputy Head at Sherborne School in Dorset.
It was the huge privilege of building a new school community that led to me relocating to Gibraltar with Diana and our two teenage children. In my spare time I enjoy competing in Open Water swimming events and exploring different countries and cultures.
I have been a teacher for just over 14 years, most recently as the Head of a successful Humanities faculty in Cheshire.
As a Geographer I have a passion for travelling. This enthusiasm is something I have been fortunate to dovetail with my passion for teaching, leading to many oversees student expeditions to some far flung places.
Our family recently moved to Gibraltar for the excellent quality of life.
My wife hails from Gibraltar and the childhood she describes on the Rock is something we are very conscious our eighteen month old daughter, Sofia, experiences.
I was born in Gibraltar and lived here until the age of 18 when I left to study at the University of Exeter.
Following on from my degree, I obtained a job as a teacher of Science and, for the past five years, have been Head of Physical Education.

I grew up on the beautiful island of Mallorca and having completed my schooling and university degree in my home city of Palma, my thirst for adventure and development took me to England and then to Barcelona to complete a PostGraduate course in Marketing.
In 2007, I returned to England with my husband and we lived in the historical cities of Canterbury and Cambridge. During my eight years in the UK, my desire to provide real change led me to completing a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages and since 2011, I have taught in both the UK and Spain.
My interests outside of the classroom include: travelling, hiking, theatre, cinema, music, cooking, eating and chasing after my two young daughters!
I moved out to Spain with my husband and two children in 2007 and have previously worked as Head of English and UCAS Officer at an international school in Spain.
I am also a qualified psychotherapist/counsellor.
After graduating from St Andrews University, I tried my hand at a variety of careers, before realising that I was destined to follow a family tradition of going into teaching.
I have a lifelong interest in horses, have sung in choirs for many years and am in my fifth year of studying Spanish at a local language school.
I am excited to be part of this incredible team at Prior Park School Gibraltar as an Art, ICT and PE teacher.
Outside of school, I am a dedicated international athlete who has represented Gibraltar in numerous competitions in athletics. I am also a keen painter and have a particular interest in portraiture.
I am from Ireland, where I received my BSc Chemistry and my teaching qualification. For the past 7 years I have been living in the South of Spain and teaching in two different international schools on the coast, delivering both the English National Curriculum and the IB Diploma Programme. I live with my partner and we have two sons. In my spare time
I enjoy running, travelling and spending time with my family enjoying the pleasant Mediterranean climate.

I am a 32-year-old teacher from Spain.
My background is in architecture however I always felt I had a vocation for education.

In 2012 I moved to London to gain teaching experience in a lively and multicultural environment.
I have taught a variety of subjects, both in Primary and Secondary: Spanish, ICT, D&T, Mathematics, Physics and Arts.
My love for mathematics was sparked when I had the rare privilege to see a real Enigma machine from WWII. We learnt about how mathematicians used coding in order to encrypt and decrypt vital messages during the war. Inspired by such a powerful example of the practical application of math, I went on to study mathematics at the University of Sheffield, receiving a BSc with Honours. I then proceeded to complete my PGCE at the University of York.
I like to travel and frequently dabble in arts and crafts in my spare time. I especially enjoy painting with a particular focus on landscapes and still life.
Since completing my degree 25 years ago I have taught across a range of schools in the UK, Gibraltar and East Africa. Much of my experience has been in primary education within the UK and most recently as a Head Teacher in Cheshire, where I had the privilege to lead a main stream school with a Cognitive and Learning unit.
Prior to this I spent 15 years as a middle/senior leader with responsibility for Special Needs, including four years at St Christopher’s, Gibraltar. I am passionate about making education accessible to all children and would consider inclusion to be my main area of expertise. My primary background has given me a real understanding of how children learn and the range of different barriers they can face. I find supporting Students, Parents and Staff to understand and overcome these barriers incredibly rewarding work.
I have three teenagers and enjoy spending time with them and socialising with friends in my spare time.
I was born in Gibraltar and spent my school years here; after A Levels I moved to Berkshire, in the UK, where I spent 26 years in the Health Care industry.
