Keith was educated at Rossall School before attending University College, Oxford where he read English, followed by a PGCE. He also gained 3 Blues at Rugby whilst at Oxford. He began his career teaching English at Eastbourne College, moving on to Marlborough where, following a year’s teaching exchange in California, he became a housemaster. He became Headmaster of Loretto School in 1995, overseeing the introduction of co-education, and Bedales in 2001. At Bedales, he introduced the Bedales Assessed Courses - more stretching and imaginative alternatives to GCSEs which are as strongly endorsed by universities as they are by students and teachers.
As Headmaster of Bedales Schools, Keith teaches as much as time allows, he loves teaching and really welcomes the insight that teaching gives him into what life is really like for students and teachers here. Teaching is the lifeblood of any school.
Apart from teaching... his job involves all sorts of things - happily, much talking with people, watching students and staff in action and doing all he can to extend the quality and range of opportunities open to students across the 2 - 18 range of the Bedales Schools.
Keith is married with three adult offspring - two gainfully employed and one in her final year at university.
