Andrew Duckworth – Meet the Teacher

How have your first few weeks at Bangkok Prep been?

It has been a very exciting start as we get the brand new Learn 2 Swim program up and running. A lot of hard work is now paying off as we’re seeing a great number of students join the program. It’s been amazing to meet so many amazing characters both staff and students.

Why did you choose to work at Bangkok Prep?

Having worked in aquatics in Thailand for 3 years, I was very aware of the reputation that Bangkok Prep has in swimming. I attended last year’s Puppy Cup as a coach of another International School and was very impressed with the facilities as well as the organisation of the event. When the opportunity arose to work at Bangkok Prep, I jumped at the chance!

 How would you describe your teaching style?

For those of you into Premier League football, my style is probably similar to Jurgen Klopp. I’m very lively on the poolside, extremely competitive, but ultimately an approachable and down to earth person. It’s important that every student feels valued as we strive to get the best out of our athletes.

As Head of Primary Aquatics, what is your vision for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and what would you like to achieve?

First and foremost, I hope to establish the Learn 2 Swim program. I have 20 plus years’ experience in teaching / coaching swimming and will use all of this to help establish it as one of the best programs in Bangkok. As for the squads, it’s important that I help all student athletes achieve their potential. For this to happen we need everyone pulling in the same direction, from parents to staff and of course all our swimming superstars.

I look forward to meeting everyone over the course of the school year.
