Paul then spent over 10 years teaching Mathematics at a secondary school in Suffolk. Progressing from a classroom teacher, to second in department and finishing as a Head of Year. In 2018 Paul moved with his wife and son to Dubai to continue teaching Mathematics and take up a role as an Assistant Head teacher responsible for Student Achievement at DBSJP. After three years in the role Paul was promoted to the Senior Leadership Team with a whole school responsibility for assessment and reporting.

Away from the classroom Paul loves watching live sport, snorkelling, and spending time with his family through a variety of activities and travelling. 

Paul’s best moment in teaching always involve the penny drop moments where a student suddenly understands the mathematical concept that is being taught that lesson. He also really enjoys seeing the pride in students faces on results days, especially when they achieve results that they did not think they could get.
