Gary Horner

Currently based in Japan as Head of Science at Nagoya International School, Gary Horner has recently been elected a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, Chartered Chemist (FRACI CChem), in recognition of his creative achievement and contribution to chemical sciences and education internationally.  

Gary has contributed widely to the IB community since 2000, being a team leader and examiner of Chemistry for Paper 2 and the Individual Investigation (IA) and an experienced IB workshop presenter. His commitment to Internationalism and the importance of the global IB education community has seen him both lead and attend IB workshops in Australia, Canada and extensively throughout Asia and Europe. He has been a member of the IB Curriculum Review Committee for Group IV and a member of a small team developing the Nature of Science SL Science Pilot course.

Prior to his current position, Gary taught for ten years at King George V School in Hong Kong and previously, in Switzerland at The International Schools of Geneva and Lausanne. He has held various leadership roles: Head of Science, Head of Chemistry, Assistant Director of Studies, CAS coordinator and Head of Physics.

Australian by birth, he has taught at the secondary level for over 30 years and was involved with the teacher training program at Griffith University. He holds a Bachelor of Science, Graduate Diploma of Education and Masters Degree in Educational Studies from the University of Queensland and in 2010 was awarded a Professional Diploma in Mid- Level Leadership in International Schools from The Faculty of Education, Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Gary's passion for Science education and Chemistry is evident when you enter his laboratory. Students are actively engaged in the process of learning, undertaking a fascinating and challenging journey to understand the world around us through creative, imaginative and critical thinking. “Gary's lessons and investigations are always interesting and entertaining, filled with anecdotes and real-life applications of science. The lessons spark curiosity among students, leaving them enthusiastic and inquisitive to gain better understanding of the concepts.” Dr. Kelly Butterfield M.Chem.

Another dimension to Gary’s busy professional life is his writing for Oxford University Press, as in addition to the MYP Chemistry 4&5 Student Book, Gary also co-authored the IB Chemistry Course Companion (May, 2014).
