Meet the Housemaster...

Marcus Johnson took over as Oldham's Housemaster in September 2009.  He was born in Liverpool and educated at Rugby School, University College London, the University of the West of England and Cambridge University, culminating in a B.Sc. (Hons) in Economics and a PGCE in Mathematics with P.E.

Before he joined the staff to teach Mathematics in 2005 Marcus spent 10 years at Exeter School, with a year away from work to take part in a round the world yacht race.  He was Assistant Housemaster in Ingram’s Hall for three years and has become heavily involved in rugby at Shrewsbury, recently running the A XV, 1st XV and 1st VII.

Marcus is an RFU qualified rugby coach and a North Midlands Society Referee, and he is also an RYA qualified Yachtmaster (less useful lately with Shrewsbury not well known for its coastal proximity).  Marcus very much enjoys skiing and music, both classical and contemporary, and has been known to “bend his back” for the Cheshire based Spasmodics C.C.

In 2012, Marcus became a Boarding Inspector for the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Marcus is married to Holly and they have two children, Lizzie (7) and Ted (6), who are loving their schooldays at Packwood Haugh. Their home is in Cornwall, where Marcus particularly enjoys racing 'Florence' - a Falmouth Working Boat - during the holidays.
