Headmaster of Gayhurst School from 1993 until he retired in 2016 Andrew was educated at Woodbridge School in Suffolk and then Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge reading History. He began his teaching career in 1982 at Moreton Hall Preparatory School in Suffolk. Posts at the New Beacon School, Sevenoaks and Underhill School in Sutton Valence swiftly followed, the latter as Director of Studies and ultimately Acting Head. His wife, Anne, joined the English Department at Gayhurst in 1997.
Andrew enjoys sport in all its forms and played for numerous teams both as a schoolboy and an adult. Music has an equally important place in his life. In his retirement historical research, gardening, allotment-keeping, walking, music and philosophy keep him busy. His own son Jonathan was at Gayhurst from 1995-2003 and his daughter, Hannah, envies Jonathan’s time there!
