James SMITH

Head of Secondary

I have lived in Hong Kong since 2007, and before moving to Discovery College I was Vice Principal at King George V School, a school which is also part of the ESF network. During my time working with ESF and in international education I have been fortunate enough to work on areas such as student wellbeing, curriculum and assessment design, and the development of learning systems. I am currently completing my doctorate looking at the impact of school-based assessment on the student experience. I am originally from the UK, however, my wife, children and I very much regard Hong Kong as our home. Outside of my work I love spending time with my family, walking and hiking in various locations in Hong Kong. I also enjoy singing and playing music.
