Nanwai King’s College School is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Michael Hindle as the new Head of the International School, effective August 2021. Mr. Hindle will take over from Mr. Chris Sherring who is leaving NKCS at the end of this semester.
Mr. Hindle graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Education with Honours (B.Ed. Hons) from Leeds Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom. He has also been awarded the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH).
After graduation, Mr. Hindle started his teaching career as a primary school teacher in West London. He then went on to work in a variety of educational settings, with both primary and secondary aged students, before his appointment as Deputy Head Teacher of a primary school in the North of England. Mr. Hindle remained in this role for 10 years before branching out as an educational consultant to schools in the United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East and Asia. During this time, he advised schools on curriculum change, school improvement and leadership.
In due course, Mr. Hindle was appointed Principal of an international school in Doha, Qatar, catering for local and expatriate students from 3 to 18 years of age.
Mr. Hindle is passionate about education. His firmly held belief is that learning should be engaging, challenging and rewarding, and that every student has the capacity to excel. He values the importance of educating ‘the whole child’ – developing not only academic excellence but the skills, attitudes and dispositions necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world.
A keen musician, Mr. Hindle plays the piano, saxophone and guitar. He has written countless children’s songs and enjoys running choirs and musical groups.
Mr. Hindle is currently in London, making arrangements for his relocation to China. He hopes to be with us in Wuxi in the near future.
