Earth House Leadership Team


 Miss Mitchell, Head of Earth House

I am originally from Sheffield and studied at Sheffield Hallam University gaining a degree in PE and Youth Sport followed by a PGCE in Secondary Physical Education. Having worked on summer camps teaching various activities in the USA for four summers whilst studying, I always knew I wanted to teach overseas in an international setting.

I started my career in England and after two years moved out to Dubai in 2012 to work for GEM’s. I have had a fantastic 3 years at DESC and have been heavily involved in the extra-curricular sporting provision as well as leading the BTEC Sports programme at KS5.

My role as a form tutor here at DESC has been extremely rewarding and I am excited about becoming more involved in the House system, joining Earth as Head of House in September.




Mr Patton, Deputy Head of Earth House

Growing up in a tiny town in the North West of England, I never would have imagined my life bringing me to Dubai and to such an amazing job that I love. Before arriving here I studied for 4 years at Newcastle University attaining a Masters in Mathematics. I have always been passionate about Maths and decided I wanted to teach, so then went onto study at Sunderland University for my PGCE. After teaching for 2 years in Newcastle I decided to move to Dubai, this turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. I taught for 2 years at SRS before moving to DESC. I have loved my time here and have been extremely proud of my role as a tutor as part of Desert House.

I am extremely excited to be joining the Earth House team and look forward to working with all staff and students. It is my aim to build on the fantastic reputation Earth House has and support students in their journey through school.
