- degree in Psychology from Livertpool Hope University. My school did not have a dedicated RE department which led to my taking more science-based subjects, despite being interested in RE. While working as a police officer in one of Merseyside's more colourful areas, I became interested in working with young people, and having spent two years working as an English teacher in Japan, it seemed a natural progression to return home to teach. My interests combined to show there was only one subject for me! World and current affairs being what they are, I am sure I made the right choice. I hope to teach in a Cof E school and I am particularly interested in Christianity.
