Craig Northedge

Craig studied a four-year BA (Hons) Degree in Physical Education with Qualified Teacher Status at the University of Brighton. He taught in the UK for 10 years before deciding to teach abroad and has now been working in Shanghai for the last six years. During Craig’s 16 years of teaching, he has taken on roles such as Head of Boys PE, Deputy Head of Middle School, Head of Year, Head of House and now as Housemaster for Wellesley.

Football, Rugby, Cricket and Judo, were all sports that Craig played during his younger years both in school and at representative level for Jersey – competing in national and international tournaments and competitions. Football was Craig ‘s ultimate passion and as he grew older, it became necessary to focus his dedication to this sport – playing at university and semi-professional level. Fitness and sport will always play a huge part in Craig ‘s life and indeed. Over the last six years in Shanghai Craig has turned his hand to Boxing – regularly training and coaching the sport in this amazing city.
