Date you joined the School
What do you do at Bethany?
I teach Business Studies. I am the Housemaster of The Mount, a boys’ house for both boarders and day pupils from Years 7-12. I am also Head of Year 10.
I also run the School’s popular Young Enterprise Scheme. Bethany is a ‘YE Centre of Excellence’, one of only two in Kent.
Why do you like working at Bethany?
It’s very unique! Friendly teaching staff, great pupils, supportive parents, beautiful location and a wonderful place to bring up my own family.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
Definitely my dad turning up to my Primary School in the middle of the day to collect my brother and I, with no explanation (of course we were thinking “what have we done?!”). He actually took us to the premiere of Star Wars at Odeon Leicester Square – Wow! Been a bit hooked on Sci-Fi ever since.
What is your favourite School memory?
I played the bass drum in my school’s marching band. The final event of each summer was “beating the retreat”, a one hour show in the school’s quadrangle. That was pretty special to be involved in, as was playing in the Lord Mayor’s Show through London.
Who is your hero/heroine and why?
Neil Armstrong. Walking on the moon, only a few have done that and only one can lay claim to being the first. That truly is unique.
What is your favourite colour and why?
Two colours: Claret and Blue. ‘Up The Hammers!’
