Matthew Porter

Assistant Head of Secondary (Head of Middle School)

I have a real passion for movies, be it watching, discussing, and at one point even making them! I have, at various times; played European Student Championship Rugby, written ads for local radio, been a voiceover artist, cycled up the Alps (but not down again), remain a cricket tragic and sci-fi nerd, and once learned to ride a motorbike. My wife Fran (also a teacher) is a netball and tennis coach, as well as Mum to Theo (9) and Frankie (6). I run irregularly with my wife, and regularly after my children.

I have worked in schools in the UK for the last 16 years, following a short career in advertising. For the last 2 years I was a Senior Deputy Head at a boarding school in the south west. In the classroom I am an enthusiastic historian and politician, and I am never happier when bringing this enthusiasm to the sports field as well. I am passionate about character education, the benefits of experiential learning, and the concept of 'personal best'. I see all of those passions here at BISH, and I cannot wait to get fully involved in the Bulldog community.
