Sedbergh Prep School - Will Newman - Headmaster

Will Newman


Much of my childhood was spent in Melbourne, where I developed a lifelong passion for all things sporty. I also spent two years as a student in British Columbia, but have now fallen in love with the mountains and dales of the northwest. One day I will manage to learn at least one decent crowd-pleaser on the guitar and keep up with the cool kids on a mountain bike.

Former Process Development Chemist (Bayer and AstraZeneca); now working on a much smaller scale (Flow Chemistry, Univ. Cambridge) in parallel with my teaching. Enthusiastic chess and Fives player; I also try to bowl off-spin when the occasion demands it.
