James took over as Housemaster of Teme in September 2016, having been Assistant Housemaster in Head's House for two years. No stranger to Lancing or to boarding either, James has been at the College since September 2002, during which time he was a resident House Tutor in Second's House for five years.
In addition to his Housemaster role, James teaches Geography, coaches Hockey and is OC Army for the College's CCF. He is passionate about being outdoors and has led school ski trips to Switzerland, Geography fieldtrips to Morocco, and enjoyed numerous Adventurous Training expeditions to Wales.
James is at home in Sussex, having spent his school days at Eastbourne College. He then studied Geography at Liverpool before qualifying with his PGCE from Cambridge.
Living on site at the College with his wife Caroline, daughters Poppy and Molly, and Labrador Tarka, means that James can take full advantage of the wide open spaces and encourage active participation from his boarders in Teme.
