Former Head of Dover Campus
Frazer Cairns started his career as a management consultant and journalist after graduating from the University of York in the UK. He retrained as a science teacher and subsequently taught in the UK, Indonesia and Switzerland. Having worked in international schools for most of his career Frazer is particularly interested in the way language is used in multilingual educational settings. He continues to study and contribute to research in this area, holding both Masters and Doctorate degrees in education.
An ex-runner, Frazer enjoys sport, particularly mountain and road bike racing, despite his knees not being what they once were. He is also a keen snowboarder and mountain walker though both are quite difficult in Singapore. Frazer is married to Rebecca and has two children, Matthew and Hannah, both of whom attended UWCSEA Dover.
In July 2017, Frazer and his family moved back to Switzerland, and Frazer is now the Director at International School of Lausanne.
