Year 6 Lead
My name is Ben Tabner and I am excited to start my third year at GEMS Royal Dubai School in September. I am from the United Kingdom and I grew up on the South coast of England in a city called Portsmouth. I am a keen sportsman with football, rugby and golf my biggest sporting passions. I trained as a Physical Education teacher at Chichester University but it is in Primary Education that I have spent my career to date. I have been teaching for 8 year, having experience of a range of year groups as well as in the roles of Head of Science, Head of Maths and Head of Year.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my two years here at RDS and I cannot wait to continue my journey next academic year. I look forward to meeting the students and families that I will be working with next year. Alongside my role as Year 6 class teacher, I am also the Year 6 Leader. I am very passionate about my job and hope that I can make a difference to all of the Year 6 students. A fun fact about me is I have played against two Premier League footballers – you can ask me which ones when we meet, which I look forward to soon!
