Meet the Housemaster...

John Wright took over as Housemaster of Churchill’s Hall at the start of the Michaelmas Term 2020.

He was brought up in Norfolk, and attended Gresham’s School, before heading to Bristol University to study Geography. Starting his career in Finance in London, John decided to move into teaching in 2010. He taught Geography at Winchester College for five years, while also being an Assistant Housemaster, coaching football, hockey and tennis, and running an annual Lower Sixth trip to India. He moved to Whitgift School in Croydon for one year before returning to Winchester to be Head of the Geography Department. 

John met his wife Emily at Winchester College when she arrived as a new History teacher after starting her career at Wycombe Abbey. They married in 2016 and now have two children: Kit (2017) and Honor (2019). Emily is involved in house life, and particularly enjoys having the boys in her kitchen for birthdays, wine tasting, ice cream sundae making, or a chaotic sixth form cooking session.

The whole family love nothing more than getting outdoors – no matter the weather –   and going on long walks. They also enjoy cooking, gardening and the South Devon coast.
