David Savage

‘I love the fact that there are over fifty different nationalities represented in our student and staff bodies, and how all these different cultures are shared and celebrated collectively at Abbey.’

David completed his undergraduate studies at Oxford Brookes University and graduated with a First Class BA (hons) in English Studies. David then received his PGCE from the University of Nottingham, before attaining his Qualified Teaching Status in English Language & Literature through SNITT.

Before Abbey, David taught GCSE English Language & Literature at a local state school in Cambridge. He also worked as an English teacher at a private school in Thailand for seven years, where he focused on IELTS preparation and the Cambridge ESOL exams.

David is also the Multicultural & Diversity Co-ordinator at Abbey, where it is his job to work with students and staff to raise cultural awareness and to celebrate diversity within Abbey and the wider community.

Outside of college, David enjoys playing football, cycling, and going on long walks by the seaside. He is a qualified FA football coach and has cycled from Bangkok to Phnom Penh.
