Tony Williams

Deputy Head of Primary (Academic)
[email protected]

Hello and sawadee krap. My name is Tony Williams and I am really happy and excited to become part of the wonderful HeadStart community. I am joined by my wife Madeleine, who will teach Primary EAL, and my daughter Heidi, who cannot wait to meet her new friends in Reception. I am from Darlington, a town in the Northeast of England, and studied Law at the University of Northumbria, before completing my PGCE in Primary Education at Leeds Beckett University. I have extensive teaching and leadership experience in a range of schools both in the UK and internationally, holding key posts including Head of Years 1-5, Head of Key Stage 1, Head of Key Stage 2, Science Leader and Assistant Head of Primary. My most recent post was as Head of Primary at an international school in Bangkok, where I achieved the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH). I strongly believe that education is about finding ways to unlock the true potential of every child. As a school leader, I believe my principal role is to develop the personal, social, and academic skills that children need to enjoy their future lives and be successful. This is best done by ensuring that learning is creative, engaging and challenging; every child should learn to be a team player, a problem solver, a critical thinker; every child should leave HeadStart with a set of values and skills and the enthusiasm to make an exciting contribution to the world. I look forward to working with the students, staff and parents during these exciting times to build on the school’s already outstanding success. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy football and skiing, support Newcastle United, and love exploring new places and trying new foods with my family. Whilst in Phuket, I am also hoping to develop my new-found passion for scuba diving.
