Kim Holmes

SENDCo Teacher

After completing a Psychology degree back in 2003 in South Africa, I went on to do a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE). A stint in marketing and a Cambridge certificate in English teaching (CELTA), I then went on to teach English in Vietnam in 2009. From there I moved to Swaziland and was based there for three years. Hungry for yet more adventure, in 2012, soon after the birth of my first son, we moved to Jordan. Here, I taught A-level psychology, as well as Key Stage Three (KS3) English. In 2015, just before the birth of my second son, we moved to Oman for a one-year stint, before deciding to explore a new continent.

I have now been in this beautiful city for seven years where I thoroughly enjoy supporting students in IB Psychology with their research and being Head of Inclusion (SENDCo) at Park Lane International School. During this time, I have completed an MSc in Psychology with the University of Roehampton, London, as well as two postgraduate certificates in Psychometric testing and Access Arrangements and am a registered member of the British Psychological Society.
