Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m the Academic Director, you can find my office on the first floor, at the end of the corridor.

I studied for a teaching degree at Edge Hill University and I have worked with international students since 1998.  My first teaching job was in Japan and I’ve also worked in three other countries.  These are Italy, Malaysia and Libya.  My favourite country was Japan, but the most interesting one was Libya. I really love travelling and visiting new countries, my favourite country in the world is New Zealand and one day I hope to live there.

After working abroad, I came back to the UK and I worked in London for 2 years before returning to my hometown of Manchester. I’ve worked as the Director of Studies at two different language schools and I successfully got both schools accredited by the British Council.  I achieved the same thing for NCM in September 2012!!

I’ve worked at New College Manchester since the very first day, and I want to make this college the best place for students to study and the best place for teachers to work, providing a high quality service along with a friendly atmosphere. I hope you enjoy your time at NCM and tell all your friends about it. If you are not happy, let me know because it’s my job to make sure you are 100% happy with your classes.
