Life before Longacre

Following the completion of my degree in Geographical Information Systems and PGCE, I have held a wide range of teaching and leadership roles in both independent and state school settings. I started out at St Peter’s Catholic School in Guildford back in 1996. I spent two and a half years at Cranleigh Prep and Senior School as Head of Computing across both schools. I moved to Longacre in 2017 before working at Woolmer Hill School where I held the role of Head of Year 7, 8 and transition and Lead teacher of Computing. I am delighted to have the opportunity to return to Longacre!

Roles at School

I arrive back at Longacre as Head of Computing, Able, Gifted & Talented Coordinator and Head of House. I will also be a Form V tutor.

Away from the Classroom

I enjoy spending time away from school with my wife Katie and three sons Freddie, Leo and Bobby. I am delighted that they have all inherited my passion for football and West Ham United! I am a keen runner, enjoy mountain biking and play golf, tennis and squash.


We warmly invite you to join us at our upcoming Open Morning and experience life at Longacre as you meet pupils, and chat with teachers and our Senior Leadership team.

We look forward to meeting you!
