Stories from our international boarding schools

Chris Nicholls

I have always been involved in education and worked in a number of roles including TOK, Sociology and History teacher. For the past three years, I have worked as the Head of Curricular in charge of all extracurricular activities. Before teaching, I travelled a lot including a year in Japan but I now enjoy spending time with my family and hiking in the wonderful Devon countryside.
