Mr. Jack Burkill joins WCIB in 2019, having previously been Director of English at Reach Academy Feltham, a through-school in London. Jack attended the University of Sheffield and then trained to teach via the well-regarded Teach First Programme.
WCIB will be Jack’s first experience of international school teaching, and he is excited about the opportunity to welcome WCIB’s first cohort of Year 7 students to the school. Jack has had experience teaching students of a variety of ages, from Years 3 to 13, but his passion is Senior School teaching of literature. He has experience in backwards-planning curriculums, allowing all learners to be successful, and he is hoping to inspire a love of reading in every WCIB student he meets.
“I am determined to help students become well-rounded through academic success and engagement with the world as a whole. I am looking forward to developing an outstanding English curriculum, as well as being involved in a variety of Wellington’s enrichment opportunities.”
