Dale joined us from Tenby International School Setia Eco Park, Malaysia where he was Head of Performing Arts. His previous teaching experience comes from 9 years of educating in the UK, becoming Head of Music in his first year of teaching, and taking on further responsibility roles as Head of Performing Arts and Leader of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education. Dale has an honours degree in Music from the University of Liverpool and a PGCE from Edgehill University. Dale has spent much of his time working across various key-stages and leading Music, Drama, Dance and Expressive Arts across local and national levels, with a variety of Primary and Secondary schools. He has spent much of his career conducting action research in partnership with cultural organisations and research facilitators such as the Prince’s Teaching Institute, Arts Council England and Curious Minds, with his research being used in the development of the UK governments culture white paper (2016). Dale’s particular interests are developing a life-long love of Music amongst all students, offering students the opportunity to be creative and expressive, whilst instilling quality and academia within the subject. Dale is particularly interested in the technological advances in Music and how these can be used to enthuse and support students in their learning. In his spare time, Dale enjoys spending time with his family, engaging in the arts, running and travelling.
