Greg joined the school with a diverse background of instructing both adults and young people in his areas of specialism countryside management and animal care. After leaving the military in his early twenties Greg went on to pursue an outdoor career and studied both countryside management and later wildlife conservation at the Royal Agricultural University. Greg has led conservation volunteer groups both in the UK and abroad, his favourite being six months in the wilds of Iceland. Greg had also worked as a Park Ranger in Derbyshire and a land-based studies instructor at a further education college in Cirencester before joining us at The Greater Horseshoe School.
Greg now manages the 40-acre school farm which is situated near to his native Newton Abbot. He is happiest when he is out on the farm working with the staff and students to develop the site to its full potential and is dedicated to building the confidence of the young people that he works closely with and instilling upon them a deeper knowledge and connection to the natural world, alongside practical skills that will stand them in good stead for their adult lives.
He also makes plenty of time away from the farm for exploring Devon, gardening and wild swimming.
