Phil joined our Outreach and Admissions Team in August 2022, organising and providing support for the outreach programmes that we run with secondary school students across the South West. Among other things, he makes sure our application forms work smoothly, and has a Maths teaching background which is often helpful for understanding the needs of our Outreach students.
Phil has a degree in Civil Engineering and Management from the University of Birmingham and did his PGCE at University of Exeter. He taught Maths for 16 years and also helped set up a development charity in his friend’s village in Tanzania. He has also worked as an actor!
In his spare time Phil enjoys running, writing, drawing and puns (especially when writing and drawing)!
