Richard joined Uppingham as Headmaster in September 2016 after seven years as Headmaster and CEO of the St Bede’s School Trust in East Sussex. He grew up in London, attended Latymer Upper School, and went on to read Theology and Philosophy at the University of St Andrews. Whilst working as a teacher, he completed an MA and PhD at King’s College, London. He believes wholeheartedly that children benefit best from a rigorous all-round education. As a Governor of Durston House, I hope to add value so that the School continues to best prepare its pupils to enjoy success and fulfilment at their senior school and the world beyond.
