Mr Alan Kinsey

Head of Business Studies and Economics

Alan earned his BA (Hons) degree in Business with Human Resource Management from the University of Cardiff, Wales in 2001. Initially delving into a career in manufacturing, he honed his expertise in supply chain management, amassing two years of valuable industry experience.

In 2003, Alan made a pivotal career shift, leaving the industrial realm to pursue a PGCE in Business and Economics at Swansea University.  During his initial teacher training at a prominent comprehensive school in South Wales, UK, he discovered his calling, realising that teaching was the perfect career path for him.

Over the next 18 years, Alan dedicated himself to education, teaching for 17 years at a state-led school in South Wales and for one year at a private establishment in England.  His journey within the academic realm saw him ascend to roles such as Head of Business and Economics, Head of Faculty for Business, ICT, MFL, and Social Sciences.  Additionally, he was seconded to the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) to lead on curriculum development and assessment, recording and monitoring.  Throughout this period, Alan actively participated in various initiatives, contributing to enhanced student outcomes across diverse subject areas.  

Alan's proficiency as an Examiner has been evident since 2007, where he joined a UK-based examination board.  His roles encompass Resource Developer, Moderator, Examiner, Reviser of question papers, and Principal Examiner—responsible for establishing and maintaining marking standards for external assessments.  Notably, he has served as Chair of Examiners, showcasing his leadership in assessment processes.

Having relocated to Dubai at the onset of the 2023/24 academic year, Alan is enthusiastic about sharing his passion for Business and Economics.  His primary focus is on supporting student well-being at School and aiding them in attaining the highest academic standards.
