This episode is with Dr Glenn Moodie, Principal at Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar school in Malaysia. Born and raised in New Zealand Glenn moved to the UK in 1998 to pursue a PhD at Bristol University. He became a teacher along the way, by mistake, in an independent boarding school and has been in British, independent boarding schools all of his career at Clifton College, Uppingham School and Wycombe Abbey School. Before joining Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar in 2018, Glenn was also Headmaster of Truro High School for four years. This is a fascinating conversation about the place of coaching in schools from a highly experienced school leader.
