Meet the House Team – Bishop Fox
As Housemaster of Bishop Fox, Will lives in Gatcombe – which is at one end of the house – with his wife Bronwen, who is a doctor, and their two children Rosie (three) and Johnny (one).
Formerly an officer in the Royal Marines Commandos, and following a short three years in the private sector, Will turned to teaching and joined King’s College in 2015. Will enjoys all sports but in particular rugby. Early morning surf trips to Saunton Sands are also not unknown. He encourages all the boys in Fox to have a broad amount of interests and to get the most out of life. Will encourages the younger boys to try everything, and over the course of their time at King’s gradually allow their interests to specialize but without becoming too narrow.
The role of Housemaster is to make sure that everybody in the house is happy, safe and has the opportunity to do their best in the school. If you are worried about anything or need any help you can always pop by to see Will for a chat ... even to tell him when things are going well!
Christopher Pearson is the Assistant Housemaster and lives under one end of Fox in a self-contained flat. He co-ordinates outdoor activities for the school as well as being a school marshal and in charge of the Sunday activities program. He is a very keen sportsman and particularly enjoys rugby and cricket. Most importantly he is an ex Bishop Fox boy himself so has a keen awareness of what life is like in house. He is obviously brilliant at arranging outings and provides another great listening ear close by for those who need it.
