Kay Turner

Head of Secondary ( Director of Key Stage 3 and 4)

I have over 20 years'  experience in the UK and Middle East as a teacher of French and German and as a senior leader.

In 2005 , I moved to Qatar to work at an International School as Head of Languages. In 2009, I moved to GEMS Wellington International School, Dubai as the Curriculum Leader for Languages; in addition to my role within WIS, I was responsible for training  teachers of Arabic as a Second Language across the GEMS network of schools. I have trained as a senior leader in GEMS Dubai and as a leader for Instructional Rounds at Harvard University, Boston, MA.

I am very experienced in teaching French and German from Year 7 to Year 13 and has an extensive knowledge of the GCSE as an examiner for both languages. I have a sound knowledge of the IB Diploma programme as a teacher of French, German and Theory of Knowledge and as a Diploma Programme administrator.
