It was in 2014 that I decided to leave the UK and become an international private school Director of Sport. Consequently, I have now been a Director of Sport in three private international schools (Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Germany).

Since then, I have now led the BBS PE Dept into an new era of PE (without the restrictions) and my main aim is to now channel all of my department’s innate passion and knowledge for PE into:
