Rob is a recent addition to the Ripon Outwood team. He’s arrived following 10 years at middle leadership level in another ‘Outstanding’ school in North Yorkshire. His new role, as Assistant Principal Deep Learning, puts him in charge of teaching and learning across the Academy. He believes in a research led approach to improving the learning within the classroom. Crucially he wants students to understand ‘how they learn’ so when they leave the education system and enter the working world they have the skills needed to succeed.
