Chris joined Ampleforth College in 2015 after reading History at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Chris is a former vice-president of the Oxford Union Society and worked as a tutor for a leading university admissions consultancy before taking up the role as a History teacher and Assistant Housemaster at the College.
"Ampleforth provides many opportunities to shape my career. The College gave excellent teacher training, allowing me to develop the craft of teaching whilst taking real day-to-day responsibility for academic sets. I enjoy the fact that the interdependence and inseparability of pastoral and academic responsibilities is recognised at Ampleforth. I have been able to develop these aspects of my role simultaneously, in the context of the holistic, Benedictine education that we offer our students. There is an excellent rapport between staff and students at Ampleforth, arising from the fact that the Valley is a home, as well as a school and place of work. As a Catholic, I have valued immensely the opportunity to practise my faith here."
