Life before Stowe
I taught at Buckingham School for 11 years: before that in Somerset and before that in Yorkshire. Many years ago I worked professionally in the theatre, television and radio!
What do you enjoy most about your subject?
The endless opportunity for creativity, exploration and trying out new ideas.
What do you enjoy most about Stowe?
The friendliness and honesty (most of the time!) of the pupils.
What is your favourite Lesson?
The time just before the practical assessments for GCSE, AS and A2 exams.
What do others say about you?
I think (or at least I'd hope!) Stoics would say that I'm caring, passionate, friendly, supportive and honest.
Director of Drama, Master in Charge of Congreve (the annual School plays both for Junior and Senior Stoics), the co-ordinator of the annual Luffield Festival with neighbouring Schools, Arts Festival Director.
Theatre, cinema, British Progressive Rock Music.. the good stuff from about 1970 to 1976!
