Dr Matthew Jenkinson - Head Master
Dr Matt Jenkinson took up the post of Headmaster in September 2019. He was previously Deputy Head Academic and Head of English and History at NCS and one of the chorister tutors, looking after the pastoral and logistical concerns of the choristers of New College Choir.
Dr Jenkinson read for his DPhil at Merton College, Oxford, having won the Thompson Prize at the University of Durham. He also holds Master’s degrees in historical research and educational leadership. He has held four research fellowships at the Huntington Library in California and he is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. Dr Jenkinson is the author of Charles I's Killers in America and Culture and Politics at the Court of Charles II, as well as over a hundred articles, op-eds or reviews covering a wide range of educational, historical or literary topics. He is also the editor of the Hour-Long Shakespeare series and co-author of How Poems Work. Dr Jenkinson has taught at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels, as well as being a foundation governor of a local school.
Beyond the classroom, Dr Jenkinson's interests are primarily cultural, covering a wide range of art, architecture, literature and drama. His musical interests vary from Brahms to Jackson Browne, and he can occasionally be found playing the violin (when no one else is listening). Dr Jenkinson has a particular weakness for Italian crime drama and, indeed, most things Italian. When he's not in Oxford, he likes to be in Italy or the USA.
