David is the Head of Mathematics at Wellington’s Senior School. Before moving to Wellington, he was involved in the business of international school development for a UK independent school brand. This has left him fascinated by the areas of academic development within schools.
David lived in Norfolk in the east of England. He read mathematics at the University of Cambridge and his postgraduate teaching qualification is from the St Mary’s College, London. He has been a teacher for almost 25 years and has worked in some of the UK’s leading independent schools, teaching mathematics as well as coaching rugby and being responsible for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. In 2010, he became the Deputy Headmaster Academic at Gresham’s School in Norfolk, where he developed a new whole school curriculum while streamlining the school’s academic development plan, staffing structures and approaches to learning.
He has lived in Shanghai before with his wife, who is also a teacher, and his three children. The whole family thoroughly enjoy China and all it has to offer!
When not at work, David likes to watch sport and referee rugby as well as travel – which is fortunate because living in Shanghai offers up a whole new world of travel opportunities.
