Founders of Hope in Education, Graham and Phill, have both worked in significant leadership positions within education and met through Christian Schools' Trust. They are united in their passion to share valuable knowledge from their years of experience, and offer training, support and insight.
Who we are
Graham began teaching at The River School, Worcester, a small private Christian school in 1987. He has served in a variety of leadership roles there including Headmaster. He is currently the National Director of Christian Schools’ Trust (CST) in the UK as well as being Chairman of the European Educators’ Christian Association (EurECA).
Graham has a strong interest in the culture of schools and education systems, and in how Christian teachers can access all the resources God has for them in order to bring His influence to our nations.
He has two married daughters, one grandchild and is widowed.
Presenter and Inspirational Teacher
Phill began Bradford Christian School in 1993 and is still the Headmaster. He has always believed that his city of Bradford needed a school where God was loved and honoured as the basis for educating its pupils.
His desire to train teachers within a Christian worldview has spilled out from his school, so that now he oversees all CST’s training through his course; The Essential Christian Teacher. He has taken these principles into Europe and Asia and has a strong desire to see children and young people inspired and sent out from schools to serve the Lord and bring change to their societies.
He is married to Audrey and they have three married sons and two grandchildren.
