My name is David Snell. I have worked in Woodard House since 2010, when I joined as the Deputy, before becoming Housemaster in 2014.
Prior to teaching I was a project manager for a pharmaceutical company, whilst being a member of the Royal Marine Reserves, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan, but I quickly realised being shot at is not much fun.
Since joining King’s every day it is an absolute pleasure to be at the school, and I consider it an honour and a gift to play a part in the Woodard boys’ formative years. Their energy, courtesy, goodwill towards each other and boundless humour keep me young, and I am constantly amazed at what a happy community the boys have created for each other.
My wife, Caro, is also a teacher; although I keep telling her biology is similar to colouring in. Within the school I also manage a rugby side, having little or no coaching ability and I teach chemistry, although the boys are nice enough not to hold that against me.
