Ms Chadd studied Biology at the University of Portsmouth and upon graduation she immediately relocated to work in a busy research lab in Manchester. It was whilst supporting undergraduate students that she decided to train as a teacher and she successfully completed a PGCE in Science Education at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Ms Chadd works very hard to ensure all of her students succeed and was well-known at her previous school for her approachable nature. In 2015 Ms Chadd received the SSAT Lead Practitioner accreditation and felt the time was right for an even bigger challenge, hence the move to Shanghai! She is very much looking forward to the new challenges ahead.
Mr Chadd practised as solicitor specialising in commercial and property law for a number of years before following his long-held ambition to teach. Since entering the profession, Mr Chadd has been fortunate enough to teach in a selection of good and outstanding schools on the south coast of the UK.
As a strong believer in inclusion, Mr Chadd takes a caring and nurturing approach to the classroom. He believes that strong professional relationships with the children, built on trust and respect, enables them to enjoy school life and to make rapid progress.
A natural and determined problem solver, Mr Chadd is happiest being challenged, both personally and professionally. This desire for challenge led Mr Chadd and his family to Shanghai.
