Meet the Housemaster...

Henry Exham took over as Housemaster of Oldham’s Hall from Marcus Johnson at the start of the Michaelmas Term 2019. He was educated at Shrewsbury (Rigg’s Hall) and went on to study Anatomical Sciences at Bristol University, where he met his wife Anna. After working in operations and logistics for a fashion designer in London and a brief stint doing medical research in Hiroshima Hospital Japan, Henry decided to pursue teaching. He completed his Biology PGCE at King’s College London.

Henry began his career at The Oratory School near Reading and after four years made the move to Fettes College, Edinburgh to become Assistant Head of Biology and Assistant Housemaster. Here he worked in the Upper Sixth Boarding House and completed his BSA Certificate in Boarding Education. It was during his time at Fettes that he became deeply involved with the use of technology in the classroom and worked closely with the Head of Digital Strategy to move the school forwards in this fast-moving field.

In 2016 Henry returned to Shrewsbury with his young family, joining the Biology Department and becoming a Tutor in Oldham’s. In 2018 he was appointed as Oldham’s Assistant Housemaster and Shrewsbury’s first Head of Digital Learning.

Henry pursues his passion for Digital Learning in his own time by making resources for his own website and producing videos for his ever-growing YouTube channel He is a certified Microsoft Educator and a Google Product Expert in virtual reality.

Henry loves coaching sport, especially football. He ran the 1st XI at The Oratory for two years, was Master in Charge of Football at Fettes and started the first ever Fettes Women’s football team. He has also coached rugby, cricket and tennis. In his spare time Henry loves running and takes part regularly in the local Park Run and 10k races.

Henry and Anna have three children, Indigo (2011), Felix (2014) and Skye (2016).
