Adrian Boeckeler (School House 02)

After moving to Los Angeles seven years ago I met my wife, and we welcomed our first son, Leander, in 2019. Our second son is due later this year. I’ve been working as a music producer and Grammy foundation member and my wife is an actress. A typical LA family. (2021)


Alan Mandel Butler (02)

After leaving Sevenoaks I have been fortunate enough to enjoy a varied career in the entertainment industry, working as an actor, director and educator across stage, screen and audio. As an actor some of my film and TV projects include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Rocketman, EastEnders, War Horse, and most recently the Netflix horror film No One Gets Out Alive. I’ve also worked on a variety of adverts, off West End and touring theatre shows, short films and audio dramas. A few directing projects include the award-winning audio drama Red Valley, festival and fight directing the Stroud Shakespeare Festival and developing a series of anthropological documentaries for the Pitt Rivers Museum. My participation in the Romania project in the summers of 2001 and 2002 ignited my love of teaching and since then I have been a dedicated performing arts practitioner working in a variety of settings with actors of all ages. Most recently I have moved to the UAE and am excited to be assisting in developing the acting programme at the first conservatoire drama school in the MENA region, the Sharjah Performing Arts Academy.

Christopher Roche (04)

I was at Sevenoaks School from 1997 to 2004 and loved it. I went on to do a Master of Arts in English Literature (Warwick University, UK, and then Sydney University, Australia) and then converted to medicine as a graduate, obtaining my medical degree in London (2010-14). I am now a cardiothoracic surgery trainee and am currently on time out of training to do a PhD in cardiac surgery at the University of Sydney. I had a very positive experience of Sevenoaks and the IB, which I thought was a brilliant programme. I even ended up using Latin, which I studied for all seven years at Sevenoaks including at Higher Level IB. That’s because medical terminology is based on Latin and Greek but also because I married a Czech and am learning that language, which is one of the few which has a similar structure to Latin. I chose Latin because I thought the teachers were cool (which perhaps says something about me!) but it shows that you never know when these things will come back around. As part of my PhD, I recently invented a minimally invasive surgical instrument which was prototyped and tested in a proof-of-concept study. (2021)
