Mr Chappell

After studying Cell Biology at Durham and then training to teach, Andrew started his career at Brentwood School where he ended up as a resident Assistant Housemaster. He arrived at Lancing in 2003 to run Sankey’s when it was a boys’ Boarding House, before working as Housemaster of Head’s from 2008 to 2020. His interests include almost anything connected with life science, walking in the Lake District and playing tennis (without a great deal of success, admittedly).

In his spare time he coaches U14 cricket and runs the Linnean Society, which prepares Sixth Form Biology students for applications to elite universities, and makes a mean curry. He is married to Jessica and has two sons, Toby and Hugo
