Rupert Mercer

Classics and Div Don

Rupert left the world of private tutoring to return to Winchester in 2018, having been a Collegeman from 2004-2009. He teaches Classics and, his great favourite, first-year Div, as well as coaching football, tennis and Winkies, where he does a valiant job of pretending to know all of the rules.

He and his wife Rosie, also a teacher, are expecting their first baby in September 2022 and spend their holidays in vigorous debate about what is an acceptable number of mountains to climb in a week; Rosie tends to win out.

Rupert will take over as Housemaster of Chernocke House when James Fox finishes his term of service in 2025.
