Part of the History Team since 2007

"I've worked at OCR on the history portfolio since 2007. Previously I've held roles at Cambridge International Examinations and for an educational publisher. I have a degree in Economic and Social History from the University of York and a Masters in Modern History from UCL.

"In my spare time, I enjoy crosswords and playing snooker."


Richard KerridgeRichard Kerridge 

Part of the History Team since 2022

"I've worked for Cambridge University Press and Assessment since September 2019 and joined OCR in October 2022. Before that I taught for 17 years, mainly in a state school but for one year as Boarding Master in an Independent. I've been a Deputy Head of Sixth Form, Head of Humanities and SSAT Advanced Skills Teacher, supporting students and staff both pastorally and academically. I've written and contributed to A Level and GCSE textbooks, as well as written resources and presented for the Historical Association and Schools History Project. I've marked GCSE and A Level History for exam boards since 2007.

"My degree is in History and I enjoy reading non-fiction, particularly around the Civil War and early Crusading periods. I’m happiest with my family, friends and dogs."
