Advanced Skills Teacher (Mathematics), Steven Powell, has recently arrived on St Helena to take up his new post at Prince Andrew School on a two-year contract.

Steven said:

“I’m very excited and honoured to have been given the chance to contribute towards the development of Mathematics education on St Helena. I am determined to do everything in my power to make a real difference to the mathematical education of young people on the Island.”

Steven’s family are from Portsmouth, but until recently, he taught in the City of Peterborough.

As a child, Steven spent three years on Ascension Island.

Steven added:

“I have always remembered the kindness shown to me by the Saints on Ascension Island and how proud they were of their homeland. When I saw this job advertised I jumped at the chance to get to see and live on St Helena myself and cannot think of a better environment to raise my young daughter in.”

Steven has ten years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and has a track record of producing results across the ability spectrum for pupils at GCSE level.

Steven specialises in behaviour management, development of pupil’s problem-solving skills, and the effective use of IT in the classroom, to the point where he was invited to present at the ‘Apple in Education Conference’ in 2015 and 2016.
