TIM SLOMAN, Founding Head of School (2013-2016)

Tim Sloman brought over thirty years of education and boarding experience to Carlsbad International School, including a Master’s of International School Administration, a Master’s of Education, and nine years as an Academic Administrator for a top Swiss international boarding school. He has lived and worked in the United States, England, Switzerland, Germany and the Czech Republic, holding a wide array of positions, such as Program Director, Athletic Director, Head of PE, Craft, Design and Technology Teacher, with a unique specialization in international summer camps for youth. Since his humble beginning as a Cabin Counsellor for the YMCA, his passion has always been working with and making a difference in the lives of children in any and all situations.

Tim’s dedication to student care, comfort and safety have earned him the respect and love of his former pupils, colleagues and administrators throughout his career. He enjoys all types of sports, and has played, coached and refereed almost everything from football to volleyball, table tennis and ice hockey. Although it’s been many years since last living in his hometown of Stafford, England, Tim is a devoted supporter of the England National Football Team, as well as the Manchester United Football Club.

In January 2016, Tim accepted a new position as Founding Head of School of the MiSK Foundation’s newest K-12 international school in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  CIS wishes Tim all the best in his new endeavour and is forever indebted to him for the tireless work he completed on behalf of CIS, our staff, students and parents.
