Iain Campbell
Iain Campbell
Head of Classics
I came to teach at Radley in 1997, after completing a degree in Classics and a PGCE at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and took over as Head of Department in 2013. Like the rest of the Department, I am heavily involved in the extra-curricular life of the College, coaching rugby, hockey and cricket, and playing the latter two whenever I can find the opportunity. I also oversee the extra-curricular Philosophy at Radley, and have a long-standing interest in First World War Poetry and Heavy Metal music, having written articles on the influence of the Classics on both.

Head of History, F Social Tutor Elect
I move into F Social in September 2021 as Tutor. I studied Ancient and Modern History at Somerville College, Oxford, after 10 enjoyable years boarding at Dorset House School and Downside. I was fortunate to be sponsored through university by the Royal Marines and subsequently served for 8 years, including operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. On loan to Sandhurst as an instructor, I recognised that the development of young people was my calling, and I changed careers in 2009. After 4 years at Wellington College, teaching Classics and History, leading the CCF and working as a resident assistant house master, I moved to Radley. Here I have worked in G, B and L Socials, coached a wide range of sports, instructed in the CCF, played in concert band and run many trips. My wife, Alice, is an epidemiologist working at the University of Oxford. We have three children, Peter, Benedict and Alexander. We all enjoy adventurous outdoor activities and traditional country sports, and spend much of our holidays in the Lake District.
