About the author

I’m Dan McHugh, and I am deputy headteacher in charge of the upper school (Years 10-13 in the British system; Grades 9-12 in the American system) at the British School of Bahrain (BSB). Bahrain is a tiny island just off the Eastern coast of Saudi Arabia. It is also a melting pot of nationalities and at the BSB there are students from over 75 countries.

I’ve taught GCSE, IGCSE, IBMYP, A-level, BTEC and IBDP during my career, which has taken place in Spain, Jordan and Bahrain. My wife and I share passions for travelling, for sport and for food. As much as possible, we are trying to have these interests rub off on our children, James and Charlotte.

I retweet and ramble from time to time via @mistermchugh, though I suspect twitter might be a little old school for you 😆
