Mr Marcus Towse

In most of my professional life I have been a teacher, mainly of Physics, but also Philosophy. Many years ago I spent a few years in the computing industry working as a programmer and systems analyst, but decided that teaching and education were the place I wanted to be. Having worked in several Colleges, I returned to Scarborough Sixth Form College in 2007 , and became Principal last year. I am determined to do what I can to help Graham School become the best it can be for the community it serves.
