Housemaster

Robert Hudson joined Bloxham School as Head of History in September 2014 having previously taught for seven years in York, five of which were spent as an Assistant Housemaster. He became Assistant Housemaster of Stonehill in 2017, before moving across to Crake in 2018.

As a proud Yorkshireman, Robert is a keen follower of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Leeds United and Leeds’ Rhinos (the less said about Leeds’ Rugby Union team, the better!) as well as York City FC. In terms of history, his interests principally lie in the Late Middle Ages and he currently sits on the History Advice Board at the University of York where he studied for both his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

In addition to being the Crake Housemaster, Robert is also Head of History and Politics, and coaches rugby and cricket. In the Summer he plays cricket for the staff team, where he is well known for his enthusiasm in the field, his errant bowling and his slow scoring approach to batting. Robert lives with his wife Siân and their two children.
