In This Section


Established in 1866 by its first Housemaster Mr Green, members are named 'Greenites' after our founder. The strength of the community in Hazelwelll is well suited to the fabulous Victorian building in which it is housed. Visitors to the House always comment on the warm and homely atmosphere. Parents are always welcome and, as Housemaster, I believe in forging a strong partnership between the Boarding House and home. Mutual trust and respect for one another underpin everything that we do.

My tenure of Hazelwell began in September 2014. My wife Charlotte and I have extensive experience in boarding. Having arrived at College in 2008, I have been teaching Modern Languages since 1996. My wife is also a French teacher and has previously been a Housemistress in Cheltenham. We have two children, Freya and Ruby.

I love being involved in College sport: refereeing rugby, and coaching hockey and athletics. I also run the Fourth Form ski trip. 

Together with the excellent matrons and marvellous tutors, we will continue to provide the stability, inspiration, and encouragement that is needed for each boy to thrive.
