Meet the team

The helpful and friendly College Office team consists of David Taylor, John Blackbourn, Ken Lockwood, Paul Clark and Steven Tulip.


They are the first point of contact in College for any general enquiries. What they don’t know about College facilities isn’t worth knowing! The team are responsible for security, keys, post, meal tickets, gym admission and numerous other things. They are also all qualified first-aiders and the first point of contact in an emergency.
