Roger Scruton Age

He Was 75 years old.

Roger Scruton Family

Scruton lived with his parents, two sisters, and Sam the dog, in a pebbledashed semi-detached house in Hammersley Lane, High Wycombe. Although his parents had been brought up as Christians, they regarded themselves as humanists, so home was a “religion-free zone”. Scruton’s, indeed the whole family’s, relationship with his father was difficult. He wrote in Gentle Regrets: “Friends come and go, hobbies and holidays dabble the soundscape like fleeting sunlight in a summer wind, and the hunger for affection is cut off at every point by the fear of judgment.”

Roger Scruton Education

after passing his 11-plus, he attended the Royal Grammar School High Wycombe from 1954 to 1962, leaving with three A-levels, in pure and applied mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The results won him an open scholarship in natural sciences to Jesus College, Cambridge. Scruton writes that he was expelled from the school shortly afterward when the headmaster found the school stage on fire during one of Scruton’s plays, and a half-naked girl putting out the flames. When he told his family he had won a place at Cambridge, his father stopped speaking to him.

Having intended to study natural sciences at Cambridge—where he felt “although socially estranged (like virtually every grammar-school boy), spiritually at home”—Scruton switched on the first day to moral sciences (philosophy). He graduated with a double first in 1965, then spent time overseas, some of it teaching at the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour in Pau, France, where he met his first wife, Danielle Laffitte.
