britannica-new-principalThe British education company Orbital Education Ltd, the owner of Britannica International School Shanghai, has just announced that David Goodwin will become the second Principal of the school. Goodwin will replace Alun Thomas, the founding Principal who will leave in the summer. 

David Goodwin has a distinguished career in international education and is no stranger to education in China. He discharged a senior management role at Harrow International School in Beijing. Currently he is head of the British School in Colombo (junior school). He will take up the post in Shanghai on 1 June this year.

Britannica prides itself on being the only Shanghai school that is completely British owned, British managed and British staffed. Goodwin will further embody this achievement because he has degrees from three English universities – the universities of Southampton, London and the City University London. He will capitalize on his experience in British style international schools and in prestigious private schools in England to lead the Britannica staff in the delivery of the English National Curriculum.

Goodwin has also worked part time as an inspector, making inspection visits to schools applying for accreditation by the Council for International Schools in both the UK and internationally.

Goodwin is married to Kim, also a teacher, and they are both excited at the prospect of living and working once more in China. They have two daughters who are now grown up, with one living in Sydney and one completing her final year at Bath University in the UK.

“I am very much looking forward to meeting all the staff and parents at Britannica. I am excited about the prospects for the school given its enviable location in Gubei, its fine facilities and the policy of affordable quality British education,” said Goodwin.
