Ms Lucy Johnson
Head of Psychology
Lucy graduated from the University of Worcester with a BSc in Psychology in 2001. She then followed her passion for Psychology and completed an MSc in Applied Occupational Psychology at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, after which she began working as an Occupational Psychologist in the UK, utilising her qualifications in several industries, including the police.
In 2003 Lucy embarked on a career change in order to share her enthusiasm for her subject, and began her teacher training at a large comprehensive school in Gloucestershire, UK. Here she was Head of Psychology, Head of House and finally Director of Sixth Form and Assistant Head. She successfully led the Sixth Form for eight years. During this time she was fortunate to be involved in many initiatives that led to improved outcomes for students including a pilot study on the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which ultimately led to a programme that has been used in many schools in the UK since. Lucy’s love of Psychology has also been evidenced through her also completing qualifications in personality testing, aptitude testing and counselling.
Lucy is keen to share her love for this subject now she has moved to Dubai to teach, and is looking forward to furthering her students understanding of the rapidly changing world around them through psychological concepts and theories.
