B Social

B Social

Just a stone’s throw away from a lake, golf course, and perfectly manicured playing fields, the newly refurbished B Social is aesthetically unparalleled in its location in college.

B Social celebrates the multifarious talents and achievements of all boys and the resultant camaraderie across the year groups in the Social's close-knit community is particularly apparent. This is best epitomised, perhaps, by their numerous successes in the school cross-country competition over recent years.

B Social boys and staff alike take a genuinely keen interest in the lives of others in the boarding house, be it in the buzz of nightly Cocoa or supporting each other in the multitude of school events which take place at Radley. From ex-England cricket captain Andrew Strauss to more recent B Social alumni, they all take great pride in having been a member of such a thriving and happy boarding house.

English Teacher, B Social Tutor
I have been Tutor of B Social since 2015. Born in Oxford, I have undergraduate degrees in both English and Politics & Sociology and a Master's in English Literature from Corpus Christi, Cambridge. Growing up, I spent a lot of time in Australia and the Caribbean - both undoubtedly influencing my sporting and musical tastes - before returning to go to Cheam and then on to Sherborne. My first teaching job was in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1998, after which I worked in business consultancy and then publishing in London. I returned to teaching as Head of English & Sport before becoming Director of Studies at a prep school in Oxford. At Radley, I teach A-level and GCSE English and coach the 2nd XI hockey and the 2nd XI cricket sides. I have two children, Max, who goes to Abingdon Prep School, and Beatrice, who goes to St Helen & St. Katherine's, the school where my wife Sophia also teaches (History & Politics).

B Social Pastoral Housemistress
I joined B Social as Pastoral Housemistress in January 2008, after relocating to England from Zimbabwe, where I had lived for most of my life. This has been a delightful and rewarding position. As I watch the boys transform into gentlemen, the daily routine just becomes more interesting and fulfilling.

History Teacher, B Social Sub-Tutor
After graduating with a degree in Modern History from Queen Mary, University of London, I co-founded a catering company and also worked on the run-up to the 2015 General Election whilst completing a Masters, again in History. I taught History & Politics at Solihull School in the West Midlands before joining Radley in September 2017. When not in the classroom, on the sports pitches, or Sub-Tutoring in B Social, I enjoy travelling, reading, good beer, cooking, and all things cricket.
