Headteacher, Mr Justin Blakebrough
Previous to starting at the British School Algiers, I have been the Principal of The British School Alexandria in Egypt since August 2015. I have 39 years of teaching experience in British education, in both the independent and state sectors in the UK, as well as three years’ teaching in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I was Headteacher of a successful 11-18 comprehensive school in Chester in the North West of England for eight years, prior to my time in Egypt.
I studied Electronic Physics and Philosophy at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth before completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Bristol University. I later gained a Master of Arts in Educational Management at York University and the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH). I am also an accredited British Schools Overseas inspector.
I am married with two daughters and have a range of interests including music, independent travel and skiing.
