Year 6 Lead
Hello, my name is Sophie Ellis and I am originally from a small town in North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. I completed my English Language and Literature degree and my teaching qualification (PGCE) at Newcastle University, which is about 2 hours away from my hometown. I started my teaching career in a modern, open plan school in Newcastle, meaning that the classrooms did not have walls or doors, before moving to Dubai in 2020. Having worked in Year 5 at RDS for two years, I am looking forward to moving to Year 6 and taking on my new role this year as Year Leader.
When I am not in school I love being social with my friends and enjoying everything Dubai has to offer! I also really try to make the most of my holidays and out of term time, I love to visit new countries and experience different cultures.
I absolutely love to teach and I aim to instill a love for learning within every child. It is my privilege, alongside my incredible Year 6 team, to impact, inspire and guide our children to become successful lifelong learners who are confident, driven and resilient. I am really looking forward to meeting all our Year 6 families and I am excited to start this new wonderful journey with my class!
