“During my work in China I made many Chinese friends and grew to understand the significant benefits that a British education can offer for students aiming to study at prestigious British and American universities. It was a pleasure working with Chinese students to make this a success.”

Like so many teachers, I was first drawn to the profession by a passion for my subject. Having finished my undergraduate degree at St John’s College, University of Oxford, I applied for a further year of study in order to complete a Master of Studies degree. My area of research was early modern literature, including Shakespeare, and I have been surprised and delighted by how often I am able to draw on this body of knowledge when teaching. As Head of the English and Media Faculty, I am conscious that JCG students continually challenge the subject knowledge of their teachers: they keep us alert to developments in the disciplines we love through their own inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge.
