Richard is originally from the sunny Isle of Wight in the south of England. Richard first ventured off the “island” in 2005, moving to Plymouth University in the South West of England to complete his BSc in Biological Science. He next turned to the University of Kent at Canterbury to complete his MSc-R in Microbiology and finished this in 2010. Richard then started his teacher training as part of the Graduate Training Programme at a secondary school in Folkestone, UK. After completing his training, he became a member of an outstanding school in Kent and worked there for 7 years before joining the Britannica team here in Budapest. Richard’s interests out of school are wide, ranging from any sport but mainly football and rugby, to science, the arts and culture. He is currently trying to expand his basic knowledge of Hungarian.
