Kevin is from Perth, Western Australia and holds a Master’s Degree in Educational Management from the University of Western Australia. He joins the school with a wealth of international teaching experience behind him, having worked in junior education provision at leading independent schools that follow the British Curriculum in the UK, Malaysia and Singapore.

He comments: “I am very excited at the prospect of joining the Repton family of schools, which have carved out a very prestigious reputation for combining traditional values with the very highest levels of academic achievement. Getting to know the children and learning from the teaching faculty about their attributes and personalities will be my top priority because I am firmly aligned with the school’s belief in nurturing individuality so that pupils can reach their full potential. I am very excited to be working at a thoroughly modern school that continues to make fantastic strides in many areas of innovation, preparing pupils to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world. This includes the use of digital technology in the classroom, and I looking forward to contributing to that endeavour”.
Ian Davenport, Governor of Repton and Foremarke Schools in UK and UAE and Director of Education for Repton International, “We are delighted that Kevin has joined Repton Abu Dhabi. He brings to the role vast experience in senior roles within both independent and international schools. He is very in tune with Repton schools’ ethos and principles when it comes to nurturing individualism and encouraging pupils to aim high; an endeavor that starts in the formative years and the foundation stages of our education provision. We are confident that Kevin is the ideal person to instil those values in our younger pupils and to be a continued inspiration to both them and our teaching faculty.”
