History Teacher / SS House Co-ordinator / SS Head of Seacole
John Allen joined us from a local Korean school here in Seoul. He read History at the University of Leicester and then went on to complete an MA in International Relations and World Order. He first came to Korea in 2001 to teach English and continued his English teaching journey with spells in Japan and Singapore. After eight years as an English teacher he returned to the UK to complete his History PGCE at the University of Bristol. John has worked in a variety of teaching environments; from academies in Korea, universities and high schools in Japan, to secondary schools in England. John is an avid sportsman and helped coach high school football in Japan. He also has discovered a passion for Model United Nations and encourages all his students to give it a go! Outside school John watches Doosan Bears every chance he gets and keeps his fingers crossed that Leicester City will stay in the Premier League.
