Paul Ripley

Assistant Director (Pastoral & Wellbeing)

Paul completed a PGCE at the University of Derby in 2007. As a teacher his background is in Music (MMus) and Theatre Studies (bachelor) and he is looking forward to contributing to the life of the school from these perspectives as well. He is currently completing an MA Education Leadership and Management at the University of Bath, as well as working towards school leadership certification with Harvard and the Principals’ Training Centre.

Paul believed that his experiences as a Deputy Headteacher (Pastoral) in Chengdu at CISCD will stand him in good stead as he takes on the role of Assistant Director (Pastoral and Wellbeing) in Dulwich International High School Zhuhai, but of course he appreciates that every school context is different and he will work diligently to ensure that he add value to experience the students have here.

Paul has a lovely wife, Sophie, and they have a beautiful young daughter who is nearly two.

In his spare time he enjoys writing and recording songs, reading continental philosophy, and watching his home town football team - the mighty Peterborough United!
