What says..

 Always knew he was going to teach – ‘for me it’s about passing it on, not changing the world.’ Worked in private sector until took the job at Bourne. ‘It was the largest school that I had applied for and was the highest achieving academically.’ The lessons we observed showed hard working, well-mannered students.
