Head Porter

Historically a porter is a gatekeeper and we can normally be found at the main entrance to the school in The Porters' Lodge.  

I have been Head Porter for more than a decade and, like most of the porters, I come from a military background.  

While security is my main responsibility, I’m also responsible for looking after the Warden on ceremonial occasions, welcoming visitors to the school and maintaining the chapel clock to keep it running to time. Fortunately horology is a hobby of mine!
