My name is Rev Duncan Hutchison, and I am part of the Chaplaincy team here at Wolverley CE Secondary School. Although I was born in England, I grew up in South Africa, in a small town outside of Cape Town nestled in between the mountains and the ocean. I really enjoyed living in South Africa and being part of a rich and diverse community.
Before becoming a priest I was teacher and worked at a range of schools in the Gloucestershire area. When I felt God calling me to be a priest, I felt very strongly that I needed to use my skills and experiences as a teacher to help and support those in schools to have a richer understanding of the love of God and experience Jesus’ promise of ‘life in all its fullness.’
Outside of work, I am married and have two wonderful daughters. I enjoy sport and particularly enjoy watching the Springboks play. I also enjoy music and find getting lost in the music a wonderful way to relax.
