After more than three decades teaching Classics at Winchester College, I am still grateful that I have been able to work in such a beautiful place with such a long history.
Not every boy is enthused by the intricacies of Greek and Latin grammar – especially during the last lesson on Wednesday afternoons! But I have been privileged to share my interest in the languages, literatures and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome with pupils of great ability, and to be supported by immensely talented colleagues.
I am very grateful, too, that both my sons enjoyed their time in the school so much. My younger son is getting married in the College Chapel in April 2019.
