Head of School


I am pleased to welcome you to the Boracay European International School website.

If you are currently a student or family member, you already know that Boracay European International School (BEIS) is an exciting place to be in. If on the other hand you are visiting our website for the first time and are interested in finding out more about our school, then you have come to the right place. This will serve to help you understand our academic programme, the activities we offer and our strong sense of community. It will also give you a sense of the environment of our campus which is strategically located on undoubtedly the most beautiful island in the Philippines.

We also have a wonderful well qualified and friendly staff here. Our faculty is made up from both international and Filipino educators who recognize the need to promote student commitment to learning, to expose children to diverse perspectives, expand individual experiences and provide opportunities for students to share their questions and thoughts with others.  As international educators, our goal is to ensure we deliver high quality educational instruction to all our students.

I myself grew up in Lincolnshire in the North East of England. I received my Bachelor of Arts and Post Graduate in Education from ‘The University of Essex’ and ‘Leeds University’. After working for several years in the UK I then moved on to international teaching, working in Greece, Japan and then Manila. In Manila I worked at the European International School (EIS) as Head of the International Section, a position I held for 10 years. I moved to Boracay in 2017 having worked internationally for over 22 years.

I look forward to another successful year here at BEIS with our friendly staff, great students, and caring parents.
