He was educated at Winchester College and New College, Oxford, where he became a Fellow in 1770, graduating M.A., 1776 and D.D. in 1793. He was then curate of Compton, south of Winchester, before becoming a master of his old school, of which he was warden from 1780 until his death. During this time there was considerable disorder in the school, including two rebellions.
Through his friendship with Henry Addington, who he had taught at Winchester, Huntingford became Bishop of Gloucester, 1802–1815, and of Hereford, 1815–32, but continued to live in the comfortable Warden's lodgings at the school.
He compiled an account of his friend Henry Addington's administration, 1802; published also Short Introduction to Writing of Greek (frequently reissued), original Latin and Greek verse, and pamphlets.
