Simon studied at Kingston University, from where he graduated with a degree in Music, before completing a PGCE in Secondary Music at the same institution. 

Simon went straight into teaching and took up a post as Director of Music at a very successful boys school in South West London. During this time he continued his studies at a number of universities and completed further qualifications at PGCert, PGDip and Masters level. After thirteen years of leading a music department, he chose to leave the UK and came to Kuwait and BSK in 2013.
