Mrs Georgina Ross
Head of Performing Arts
Georgie studied Acting at Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama and then completed an MA in Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths College, University of London. She completed her teacher training through the Graduate Teacher Programme and took up her first teaching position as Head of Drama in Framlingham, Suffolk in 2002. Georgie feels very lucky to have worked with incredible pupils and teachers throughout her career and still loves being in the drama studio! Georgie has a great passion for the arts in schools and particularly enjoys the extra-curricular aspect of her job. She has directed over 25 school productions including The Lion King, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Grease, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream ( twice so far!)
Georgie moved to Dubai in 2018 and joined Jumeirah College as Head of Performing Arts. She is dedicated to ensuring that pupils have every opportunity to be creative during their school life. She believes that the skills we develop in creative subjects such as presentation, leadership, team building and public speaking are essential in preparing young people for life beyond school.
