Rachel has a BA (Joint Hons) in History and Sociology from the University of Surrey and a PGCE Secondary, History and Modern Studies from the University of Glasgow. She completed the International Leadership and Management Programme (Senior Leader) in 2014 and is currently completing her MA in Applied Leadership and Management. Rachel joins DCB with over 21 years of international teaching experience and 11 years in senior leadership roles in British international schools in Asia. Having lived in Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Indonesia, Asia has definitely become home. Her prior experience includes the post of Head of Secondary at British School Jakarta, and the majority of her career to date has been in IB schools. Rachel’s husband Leighton Edwards also joins DCB, together with their youngest teenage son. As a historian, Rachel is very much looking forward to discovering China's rich history first-hand.
