Joseph Bishop

Biology Teacher and Subject Lead / Head of Soong House

Joseph joined Dulwich International High School as Biology Teacher and Subject Lead in August 2023, also the Head of Soong House.

Originally from Brighton, England, Joseph was raised in the beautiful countryside of Pembrokeshire in West Wales. At 18, he took a gap year and backpacked around China and Australia for 6 months. This highly positive experience was key in his decision to take up a teaching position here in Dulwich Zhuhai.

After spending 5 years at the University of Exeter, completing his BSc, MSc and PGCE (teacher training), Joseph spent his first five years teaching at Wycombe Abbey, Buckinghamshire. Following this he moved back to Devon to teach at Robert Blake Science College and West Buckland School, before deciding to join the Dulwich family. He is thoroughly looking forward to the exciting next step in his teaching journey. 

Outside the classroom, Joseph has a wide range of interests, primarily sport or outdoor related. At each of his previous schools, he led students on Duke of Edingburgh expeditions and various outdoor learning excursions, such as bushcraft, campcraft and climbing. He is also an avid NFL fan, to the point where he became qualified as an American football coach, and he endeavors to introduce the non-contact version of American football to Dulwich (flag football). 

Fun Fact - Joseph auditioned for the role of Harry Potter in the popular movie franchise back in 2000. Safe to say, he didn't get the part, but for him it was an interesting experience in life.
