Toby’s teaching career started in independent boarding schools at Felsted Prep School where he was Head of Geography before taking on the same role at Felsted School. In 2008 he moved to the King’s School, Chester where he was Head of Sixth Form before joining Wolverhampton Grammar School in September 2014 as Assistant Head with responsibility for the Sixth Form.

“Our School is a community, a place where students and staff care for each other and their environment. In many ways WGS is a rare place indeed, a day school with a boarding school ethos and it is this that makes the school such a special place to work and study.”

Toby has returned to his roots as he was educated in Bridgnorth before attending Cambridge University where he gained 3 Blues as well as writing and performing in various theatrical productions including Footlights. In his spare time he enjoys playing cricket for Bridgnorth, playing and writing music and trying to find local amateur dramatic companies that will allow him to perform on stage.
