Professor Stephen Nortcliff

I have been a Governor since 2002. I am also a member of the Finance Committee and a Trustee of the Reading Foundation. I taught and researched Soil Science in the Tertiary sector from 1972 until my retirement in 2011.  During this time, I was Head of Department and Head of School with responsibility for managing 80 academics. I was also Secretary General of the International Union of Soil Sciences from 2002 to 2010. I have experience in managing staff and funds whilst providing a broad curriculum to fit the varied needs of the students. My principal interests are in supporting the School in providing a curriculum which is challenging to the boys and which equips them for success in their University careers and beyond.
