Sha Tin College’s New Vice Principal

Congratulations and welcome to our newly appointed Vice Principal, Mrs Kate Rogers. Mrs Rogers will officially join our Sha Tin College family in August 2019. Thank you to all the students, parents and staff who joined the various panels and took time to assist in the interview process.

Mrs Rogers’ brief biography can be found below:

Mrs Kate Rogers

After graduating from Loughborough University with a BSc in Human Biology and a PGCE in Secondary Science, I worked in England for 2 years, before moving to live and work internationally. My experience took me to Dubai, where I have worked at a British / IBDP Curriculum through school, for over a decade. I am a current Secondary School Deputy Principal specialising in Curriculum Design, Data Analysis and Monitoring and Evaluating strategies for strategic improvement. The key areas under my current role, “Curriculum, Assessment and Learning Skills” have improved from “Good” to “Outstanding” during my tenure, as measured by Dubai Schools Inspection Board. I teach IGCSE and IB Higher Level Biology, including a strength in the Internal Assessment element of the IB course. As an educator, I believe in the holistic development of students and the importance of a curriculum that embeds skill acquisition through a balance of academics, arts, sports and social development.

Outside of school, I am a keen runner and an avid traveller. Some of my favourite travel experiences have been backpacking through South America, driving through Italy, and reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. My husband and I welcomed our son, Oscar, into the world last year, who brings a new joy to our lives.
