Emma Townsend

Emma is a passionate, experienced teacher. She completed a BA (Hons) three-year teacher training degree in 2007, with specialisms in English and Religious Education. After completing her training, Emma taught for over ten years in the UK, teaching across Key Stage One and Two. During this time, she also worked as an advisor for the Local Education Authority, moderating learning across schools in the borough.

In 2019, she moved to work at Kellett School in Hong Kong. During these three years, she trained with The Institute of Positive Education and completed training to support transitions for children, parents and staff who move within international schools. She has held many middle management responsibilities. The most recent roles undertaken were linked with wellbeing; leading Global Citizenship and coordinating the teaching of Positive Education across the school.

Emma is delighted to continue her time teaching in Asia and is excited to become part of the Brighton College community. She moves to Singapore with her fiancé and they cannot wait to explore everything that the city has to offer. Travel is extremely important to Emma as she feels the life experience she has gained from travel has enhanced her professional practice. Running, reading and Classical History are Emma’s other key interests.

Emma sees schooling as a learning journey; using consistency in high standards and wide-ranging opportunities to make children life-long learners. She creates a learning environment that fosters a child-centred approach to learning, allowing students to become future ready.
