Life before Stowe

Very brief stint in the City before teaching. Most recently 12 years at Harrow.

What do you enjoy most about your subject?

The fact that the subject is neither an Art nor a Science, but a blend of both. This means that rigour can be brought in to solve complex discussions, but that there is still room for arguments and opinions.

What do you enjoy most about Stowe?

It feels to have a genuinely supportive atmosphere and pays more than just lip service to the idea of treating pupils as individuals.

What is your favourite Lesson?

Game Theory.

What do others say about you?

Passionate, dedicated and terrible at golf!

Other hats

Golf (!), CCF.


Appalling DIY, child rearing, the science of teaching.
