Alongside his teaching commitments he has been an OCR examiner and practical moderator and is currently the Midlands ISA Regional Sports Representative, more recently he has also become Assistant Educational Visits Co-ordinator.

Comments Neil, "I am incredibly excited to be able to take my experiences in the sporting arena and apply them to the full range of co-curricular activities on offer, especially Music and the Performing Arts. I know the impact that success, and celebrating it accordingly, in activities outside of the curriculum can have on the confidence, self-esteem and resilience of our young people and I look forward to developing this crucial aspect of Princethorpe still further."
