harrow-bj-kellyEmbracing the new school year, Harrow International School Beijing is happy to announce their new Head of Lower School – Kelly Wailes.

After studying Theatre at Arizona State University, Wailes began to teach young children drama and acting in 1996. This led her to pursue a career as an educator, and in 2001 she obtained her Teaching Credential from the State of California. Teaching young children became a passion for Wailes and she taught in Primary education for a number of years in both the US and UK before she decided to train as a leader and manager. In 2003, Wailes studied at the Open University and received her Master of Arts in Education (Leadership and Management) degree in 2006. This degree provided her with the necessary skills to pursue the next step in her educational career. In 2009, she began working as a Senior Teacher at Eaton Square School, a co-educational independent school in the heart of London educating pupils from 2 ½ to 13 years old. Kelly was quickly promoted to Headmistress of the Pre Preparatory School, which consisted of 120 pupils and 20 staff members. After three years, she was again promoted at Eaton Square School to Deputy Headmistress in June 2013.

“I am excited to join Harrow International School Beijing in order to help make a significant contribution to this exceptional organization and to continue my professional development as leader,” said Kelly. “As the new Head of Lower School my expectations for our department is to build a Lower School which is a vibrant, happy and proud community that upholds the value, ethos and high academic standards of Harrow.” This is her first time working in China; she is joined by her husband and her two young daughters.
