Gavin Merryweather

Gavin was a Senior Property Surveyor at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group for 13 years, looking after many of the country’s senior public schools (including Lancing College), cathedrals and charities, from home bases first in Oxford and then Horsham, West Sussex.

In 1998, he and his family moved to Canterbury where he became the Estates Bursar at The King’s School. There, he was involved in a number of major developments and refurbishments and site master-planning over nearly 16 years, before joining Lancing College as Estates Bursar in May 2014.

At Lancing, he has been responsible for project managing the bulk of the boarding refurbishment programme, as well as the Handford House extension and the new Laurent Hall at Lancing Prep Hove, and many other projects, both large and small.
