What do you do at Bethany?
I am Head of History and Politics, and Housemaster of The Orchard.
What did you do before you came to Bethany?
I spent ten years in a big state school near Dartford, the last five of which I was Head of Year, responsible for 210 Year 9 students.
What is your favourite music and why?
Elvis – if you need to ask why, you haven’t got the time to listen to the answer!
Why do you like working at Bethany?
The supportive atmosphere among pupils and staff is key. It’s also a beautiful part of Kent to be working in, especially when the sun is shining.
What interests do you have outside Bethany?
Music; I play guitar in a couple of bands. I also enjoy sport.
Who is your hero and why?
Churchill – a seriously flawed genius. You don’t have to be perfect to influence the world for the better.
If you were not doing what you are doing now, what would you like to do?
Touring the world as part of someone’s backing band. Someone like Pink would be good!
