Sabina Mallo, General Manager

Having worked at Hampstead School of English since 1992, I have seen many changes and it is great that the school is still very popular and students enjoy coming here. I am the General Manager and am responsible for the day to day running of the school. It is great for me to work in an environment with so many different nationalities and cultures. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling, particularly to Spain.

Angela Signorastri, Academic Director

I was born and bred in London in a family of Italian origin. Growing up in a bi-lingual situation gave me an insight into language learning and has helped me in my career as an English teacher. I went to Italy in 1992 and was based in Turin for a number of years. I arrived at Hampstead School of English in 2000 and since then I have moved into management roles firstly as Assistant Director, then Director of Studies and now Academic Director.

Anna Swinden, Director of Studies

Hi, I'm Anna and I joined Hampstead in January 2013. I really enjoy working as part of the Academic Management Team, as well as working with our great team of teachers and students from all over the world. Since qualifying to teach in 2000, I have taught both in London and abroad. Being born and bred a Londoner, I love the city as it has something for everyone. I particularly love the wealth of theatre, good food and green spaces.

Joe Thuraisamy, Office Manager

Hi, I'm Joe. I'm from Texas (the land of the cowboys) although I have lived abroad for the last seven years, both in Spain and now in the UK. I love living in London as there is such a wonderful mix of cultures, architecture, sights and events. Best of all, the variety of food here is incredible!

Rachel Johnson, Operations Manager

I started at Hampstead School of English as a teacher and moved through Academic Management and finally into operations. I really enjoy solving everybody’s problems and working across all areas of school life.  In my spare time, I love cooking - mainly European and British food, and visiting friends and family.
