Most recently, she spent four years in the United Arab Emirates teaching at a British School in Dubai, where she excelled to the positions of Head of Year and Head of Department for English.
Before teaching abroad, Miss Ismail graduated with a Psychology degree from Royal Holloway, University of London, and began her career in the Inclusion Department of a Secondary boys school. She then went on to complete the Graduate Teacher Programme in Primary Education and achieved Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Miss Ismail is always looking to develop her teaching practice and is currently completing the National Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) with UCL Institute of Education.
Whilst teaching, she has always enjoyed volunteering within the field of education and engaging in charitable initiatives. During her role as Head of Science at The Lyceum, Miss Ismail led and completed a voluntary project which developed the Science Curriculum in schools in Tajikistan. Her most recent charitable engagement involved walking/running/cycling over 100 miles in a month-with the students in her class. They managed to raise £2000 for the Bulogo School in Uganda.
