Housemaster - La Renardière

Living in the Swiss Alps is a wonderful environment in which to live and work. This is my eighth year as a Houseparent at Beau Soleil, and whilst every year in the school is different, the warm atmosphere in the school community remains strong.

I love being a Housemaster and having quality time with the students, and this is something I have been committed to over the past eleven years in Switzerland and the UK. I also teach History and Politics which has followed on from my university degrees in Law and Politics, and International History and Intelligence Studies. Performing music is also a great passion of mine, along with taking any opportunity to keep fit.

I believe laughter is one of the most important aspects of life, so having a sense of humour is important in everything I do, especially in school life. Living here at Beau Soleil is a great experience and it helps me fulfil everything I enjoy in life.
