Sara Thomas has worked both internationally and in the UK education system for more than 20 years and is currently working as a deputy head of secondary at Gems Metropole School in Dubai. Her career has largely been spent teaching languages and working as a head of sixth form, as well as training PGCE students and working on several school senior leadership teams. Besides being a mum to two teenage sons, Sara is currently completing a professional doctorate in education, with a particular focus on the implications for A-level study in Wales under the current curriculum reform. During the pandemic, Sara had an article translated into Welsh and published by the National Academy for Educational Leadership entitled, ‘Generation Covid-19’. Sara is looking forward to returning to the UK to take up a new post at ACS International School in Cobham, Surrey where she will complete her PhD.
