David Cook

Head of Science
[email protected]

I am the Head of the Faculty of Science here at HeadStart and am starting my second academic year at the school. Previously I have worked at Westminster city school in London, and for the last three as Head of Science. My own specialism is Physics which I studied at University College London, although I am passionate about all three disciplines as a study of the world around us fascinates me. Before moving into teaching I previously worked in finance for some years. I believe that outstanding results are driven by outstanding teachers who really inspire and cultivate a passion for learning in the students they teach and I look forward to leading this approach within the science faculty at HeadStart. I also believe that to inspire a love of the subject it’s application in real life should also be experienced and in the past I have lead my team in offering a wide range of extra-curricular trips and clubs relating to science including biology field trips, an annual visit to CERN in Geneva and many visits to London institutions and lectures. I hope to recreate similar experiences here in Phuket. I have also developed some super-curricular activities for students, guiding them in individual research projects based on areas of interest they have in their subject areas, a real help for university applications. I believe a school is not purely about delivering academic content but making learning fun and developing young minds to be the scientists and engineers of tomorrow. I am really looking forward to getting this academic year underway, meeting you all and sharing in your success.
