HEAD OF SCHOOL AND RECTOR

Mr. Jeff Shaw
Head of School and Rector The English School

• Bachelor’s degree in Geography and Education.
• Master’s degree in International Education.
• Ed.D doctoral candidate.
• Certificate of International School Leadership.
• Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society.
• Chartered Geographer of The Royal Geographical Society.

I set out on my career in an outstanding state school in my home city of Wolverhampton in the UK being a Head of Year, teaching Geography, managing an outdoor pursuits centre with the PTA, and coaching football and cricket teams. I then ventured abroad as a middle manager in Colombia and Kuwait, also becoming Head of School in Cologne, Germany. I settled in the Mosel valley when I was seconded by the UK government to work with the European Union in Luxembourg and then resumed my career in senior leadership in Berlin and the International School of The Hague, and most recently as International Principal in a boarding school of 4,000 plus students in South China.

I have had the great fortune to have worked in a number of educational systems across the world and I find that the academic, internationally-minded and student learning-centred vision of the International Baccalaureate is the one that sets the standard.
