Chris started his teaching career at Mill Hill County High School, Barnet, where he progressed from NQT to Head of English. His wanderlust returned, and he moved to Dulwich College Beijing, initially as Head of English, then Deputy Head, and then Head of Senior School. The school was named 'British International School of the Year' in the Independent School Awards whilst he was Head of Senior School.
After five years in Beijing, Chris wanted to return to the UK, and he was appointed Vice Principal: Achievement and Standards at The Bushey Academy, Hertfordshire. The Bushey Academy won SSAT Awards for Educational Outcomes every year he was responsible for progress and standards, and has been used as a case study in school improvement three times over.
Chris lives in Pinner with his wife and two young daughters. He remembers that he used to go to the theatre and play tennis, and when family commitments allow it, he may one day do so again.Chris is currently Headteacher at Pinner High School.
