Richard Arch, a former Economics teacher at a London independent day school for girls, has joined King Edward’s Witley to take up the position of Academic Director of Sixth Form and IB.
Mr Arch, who has been teaching for 21 years has previous experience as an IB Co-ordinator, following six years of employment at the British International School in Vietnam.
The role at King Edward’s combines teaching economics to IB / A-level pupils with the provision of support and guidance to help students progress and reach their full academic potential – in line with individual growth objectives.
Commenting on his new appointment, Mr Arch says, “Having spent time teaching in an international School environment, I relish the opportunity of working with pupils representing a diverse range of nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. I was very impressed by the School’s extensive bursary system, which engenders a balanced pupil population that is consistent with the real world. I am looking forward to helping pupils realise their personal learning targets and to encouraging them to doubt their limits and focus on a positive ‘can do’ approach.”
