Hamlet offers in soliloquy the line, ‘I have of late but wherefore I know not lost all my mirth’. Had he ever worked at Cranleigh, never would he have uttered such melancholy sentiments. This is a very fun place to work indeed and as resident Housemaster of East, life is great. I live here with my family; we hear owls in the night, and enjoy the morning mists over grounds our children have come to regard as their garden. My son Josh keeps telling people he has 101 brothers in the house. This says it all.
