Headmaster John Coakley B.A. (Hons), M.A. PGCE
The HM was born in Belfast and is very proud of his Irish roots!
He used to be a keen runner and completed five marathons (no more!) and when in Bermuda pursued golf with a passion! He now spends leisure time reading, visiting France and walking Stan - his chocolate lab, very much a school dog.
