Alex joined Canford in 2016, moving to Dorset from the North East. His passion is for ancient poetics, and the comparative study of heroic narrative poetry (especially early Greek hexameter and the Babylonian Epic of Gilgameš). Alongside Latin and Greek Alex reads Akkadian cuneiform, which he has offered as a Fourth Form activity. Alex was a keen boxer, and plans to offer some training to interested students at Canford. He is also a Tutor in Court House.
