Mr Ashley Brett, Head of Modern Foreign Languages
Mr Brett was born on the Island and came up through our education system. He achieved 13 GCSEs and 3 A-Levels including French and Spanish before going onto Northumbria University in Newcastle to study both languages as part of his degree. He had the opportunity to spend a year in both countries, fully immersing himself in the languages. He counts his wedding day, the birth of his son Rory and the year he spent travelling as three of his most treasured life experiences.
Mr Brett spent several summers working for Education First as an activity leader, EAL teacher and housing assistant before becoming a teaching assistant in the MFL department at Ryde High School following the completion of his degree. After taking a year out to travel the world, Mr Brett completed his PGCE at Southampton University. Since becoming a teacher, he has worked for 4 years at Medina College and joins us after working for 3 years at Christ the King College. As well as teaching French and Spanish, he has more recently been taking some core PE lessons as well as becoming an examiner for the AQA examination board.
