Governors & staff
senior leadership team
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.

Housemaster Cressbrook House
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.
Housemistress Beale and Thornfield House
I was born in Yorkshire and travelled south for university, joining Cambridge to study Natural Sciences and Education. Here I discovered a passion for rowing, spending many hours in an eight, happily ploughing up and down the Cam and competing in the Bumps. Soon after university, I returned to my beloved North. Away from caring for the girls in the boarding houses, I enjoy spending time at my home on the Isle of Skye, pottering around my croft and looking out across the sea.
