He has been Head of Modern Languages, Head of Upper School and has represented staff on several Staff Advisory/Executive Committees. Having completed his M.A. in Modern Languages and Literature in Education, he embarked upon a PhD, investigating the development and application of a pedagogic (French) grammar, and its role in the reduction of learner errors.
