Teaching & Coaching Experience
August 2015 to Brighton College Abu Dhabi
August 2017 I have loved every minute of my time at the prestigious Brighton College Abu Dhabi helping it to be
ranked as the outstanding school within Abu Dhabi. The whole experience has been extremely ful-
filling and I feel I have developed my professional skills as an educator, as well as a leader, in an ex-
tremely challenging environment. I have spent the past two years teaching in Year 2 and it was an
honour to have been selected to become a Housemaster for all year levels within EYFS and Key Stage
1 helping to inspire the children to be responsible, respectful, motivated, show empathy, be courte-
ous and kind; and shaping them in to well-rounded individuals . During my time here, I have run extra
curricular activities including rugby, chess and web design. I also became a qualified First Aider that
runs until September 2018.
August 2010 to Glenelg School of Abu Dhabi (now known as ADNOC Schools)- Grades KG to 12
August 2015 Throughout my time at Glenelg I taught within Grades 3 & 4 (years 4 & 5). I was a founder member of
the teaching staff helping the school to establish itself as one of the leading schools within the Abu
Dhabi community, tripling in size in the first 3 years to 1500 students in the primary school. During
this period I have been involved in developing the American curriculum to match the schools vision. I
was the Head of Year for Grade 3 during my 5 years at Glenelg leading 10 homeroom teachers and
11 TLAs to create the best learning opportunities for the students. I was also given the role of prima-
ry school representative on the steering committee to help the school to develop and implement a
school improvement plan for the education authority and also help to achieve the Middle States Ac-
creditation (MSA). I have run extra curricular activities in rugby, football, library, gifted & talented
and remedial Maths.
September 2007 Al Najah Private School EYFS to Year 13
to August 2010 During my time at Al Najah Private School, I taught in Year 4 and taught PE across 3 different year
groups. In my second year teaching here I undertook my PGCE in order to become a qualified teach-
er. Through hard work and determination I took on the role of Head of PE for the whole school. This
involved designing and creating areas for PE to be taught, developing the curriculum and assessment
policy to match the school vision, finding and acquiring many resources and an extra curricular pro-
gramme including the creating of school teams in football and basketball. I also oversaw the Maths
curriculum for Key Stage 2 in my final year.
September 2005 Skipton U19s Rugby Union Coach, Yorkshire
to September The 2 years spent here entailed coaching the U19 team as well as helping develop the youth system. I
2007 organized fixtures, took coaching sessions and oversaw the general running of the team. On top of
that I attended numerous meetings for initiating and developing the junior section of the club. I com-
pleted my RFU Level 1 and 2 coaching certificates as well as my referees qualification.

Personal Interests and Activities

I am a keen sportsmen playing Gaelic Football, Golf and Australian Football. However, my main sporting passion is Rugby
Union and through my career I have notched up many honours including coaching and helping develop the junior section
of a rugby club, representing North of England U19s and earning 7 international caps for the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
I took great pride in being a committee member of Abu Dhabi Irish Society and Abu Dhabi Na Fianna Gaelic Football help-
ing to create a home away from home for the expat community. I love to spend time with my wife and 2 children on the
weekends doing all sorts of activities. I also enjoy reading, travelling and going to the cinema.
