Since retirement he volunteers with Beanstalk in a local primary school in Greenwich, which his two sons attended in the 1980s, where he helps and encourages pupils to read.
Terry has always campaigned for, and believed passionately in, comprehensive and co-educational secondary education and is now involved with CASE (Campaign for State Education). He is based in London, UK.
