Liam Hawksworth

Head of Year 9

I joined GEMS Wellington International School in August 2021 as a teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, having spent several years teaching in the UK. I feel pleased and privileged to continue in my post as Head of Year 9, having started as Head of Year 8 in August 2022. I will continue to ensure that the children in my care feel safe, respected and cared for. I truly believe that, only in an environment like this, can children thrive, flourish and exceed their academic potential.

I began my teaching career in Nottinghamshire, the East Midlands, where I completed my teacher training with Teach First, and subsequently graduated from the Teach First Leadership Development Programme with a PGDE in education. In addition, I have worked in schools in Derbyshire, also located in the East Midlands of the UK. Here, I coached and mentored Newly Qualified Teachers. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Spanish and French from the University of Leicester. As part of my degree course, I was granted the opportunity to live and study in Puebla, Mexico and Bordeaux, France. This international experience highlighted the beauty of working in a harmonious multi-cultural environment. Last year, I completed the SSAT Lead Practitioner Accreditation Programme.
