Christopher studied at Winchester College and St John’s College, Cambridge University. After gaining his undergraduate degree in History he undertook postgraduate research and teaching in the History of Art, also at Cambridge, specialising in the relationship between English secular and ecclesiastical art and architecture in the 13th and 14th centuries. In particular, he loves medieval castles.
Christopher moved to Marlborough in 2015. Previously, he taught both History and History of Art at Taunton School. At Taunton he headed the junior scholars’ programme and at Marlborough he is Head of Academic Scholars. He set up HATA (the History and the Arts Society), which has twice-weekly trips as well as regular seminars designed to link all the arts.
His belief in the educational value of travel is reflected in the many trips he leads, both near and far. He is a qualified and experienced mountain guide and contributes to the OA programme, enjoys squash, and is a very keen musician.
He is married to Emma with two sons.
