David Jackson

Teacher of PE & Head of Cricket

My name is Mr. Jackson. I was born in Nottingham and grew up in Rugby, Warwickshire. I went to Oakham School and alongside regional and national representation in rugby, hockey, cricket and squash, I was lucky to play for the Leicester Tigers rugby Academy and Leicestershire Cricket Clubs. I completed my Sports Science with Management degree and later a PGCE at Loughborough University.


I taught at Stamford School, Lincs for 9 years acting as a boarding tutor and Housemaster whilst Director of Cricket and coaching hockey and 1stXV rugby. In 2016 I moved to Dubai to take up a post at Dubai College.


I will bring a strategy and organisation to sporting activities to allow its students’ to flourish at all levels of the performance pyramid. I hope also to provide energy and enjoyment to the school community and looking forward to making an impact along with our staff and students.
