Karen Laidlaw

Exam Officer

I was born and grew up in Broughty Ferry, Scotland and went to The Northern College in Dundee where I studied to become a Music Teacher.

I have been a Music Teacher in Montrose Academy, Kinross High School, Auchterarder High School and Dundee High School in Scotland followed by our first move to Doha where I taught music at Doha English Speaking School and was then Head Of Music at Doha College. We then moved to Alicante, Spain where I was the Examinations Officer at King's College Alicante.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and our two dogs, travelling to different parts of the world and experiencing different cultures. My interests include learning Spanish, musical theatre, concerts, singing, dancing, aerobics and gardening

I am married to Derek and we have two sons, Craig and Scott. Craig has graduated from the University of Glasgow with a MA in Social Sciences and is now working in Edinburgh, Scotland and Scott is in his final year at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain studying Law in Spanish and also his Masters in International Sports Law.

I am looking forward to being part of the team at Oryx International School to provide our students with the best possible British education in a beautiful new campus where all our students will be given the opportunity to be all they can be in a happy and welcoming school.

If you contact us via email, we will answer you within 24 hours during the working week.
