Having completed my degree in Economics at Royal Holloway, University of London, I went to Sandhurst and was commissioned into the Royal Engineers. After eight exciting years’ service in the UK and Germany, I left the Army and completed my PGCE before starting my teaching career at Westbourne House School in Chichester, where I was on the Senior Leadership Team as Head of Boarding. In 2011, I moved to Guildford High Junior School as Deputy Head becoming Head of the school in 2016. I am married with two grown-up daughters; my wife is also a Headteacher, leading a Church of England Secondary comprehensive school in Surrey.

In these rapidly evolving, increasingly global times, I am excited to be involved in the education of young people and to be leading Banstead Prep School. We’re a forward-thinking school with a talented and experienced staff team and the facilities to enable the broadest of opportunities as part of an engaging, innovative and exciting curriculum. This combination enables our children to be inspired, to work with others and to enjoy learning, both in and out of the classroom, and to go on to their senior school of choice and take charge of their world.
