Head of Earth Leopards House
Mr Birkett is originally from Birmingham, in the West Midlands of England. He graduated from Edge Hill University in 2015 with a BSc (Hons) in Secondary Mathematics Education. Mr Birkett realised he wanted to become a teacher during his school days, when his Mathematics teacher inspired and encouraged him to achieve his full potential. He has adapted this motivational attitude within his own teaching to help others achieve their dreams.
Mr Birkett was a Head of Year for two years, and Assistant Head of Year for two years prior to this at his previous school, where he taught for five years since obtaining his qualified teacher status. Mr Birkett is excited to bring the skills he developed in this role to GEMS First Point School.
This is Mr Birkett’s first time in Dubai and he is eager to immerse himself in the local cultures and experience new things. In his spare time, Mr Birkett enjoys listening to music, socialising with friends and reading next to the pool.
This academic year, Mr Birkett will be the Head of Earth Leopards. He is looking forward to helping members of his house grow from strength to strength and celebrating their achievements.
