Dr Ken Greig,
Rector, Hutchesons’ Grammar School.
Ken has been Rector of Hutchesons’ since August 2005. Before that he was Head of Pangbourne College in Berkshire, and he has also taught at Dollar Academy and Christ’s Hospital. He read Geology at Oxford before completing a PhD at Edinburgh, then working as an Exploration Geologist with BP on wells in the North Sea, UK Land and Oman. Ken has been a member of HMC since 2000, been Chairman and Secretary of South Central Division and is currently Secretary of Scottish Division. He has been a member of the schools’ cross-association Universities Committee since 2008, the HMC LIDS (Leading Independent Day Schools) cluster group since 2006, and has at various times been a Governor of three schools, an ISI inspector and a member of the Admiralty Interview Board.
Outside of school his research interest is the application of recent advances in the understanding of complex systems to sets of linked metamorphic reactions in crustal rocks, and the possibility of modelling these as a stochastic process rather than using the orthodox assumption of various kinds of phase equilibrium.
