Robyn Vincent

My role at the school is to look after our learners’ individual requirements and their pastoral welfare. I’ve been an English teacher for over 20 years and have worked in Special Schools for the last 11. I’m loving the new Outdoors School because it is so different and allows children to be children with the flexibility to learn in the way that best suits them.
I love anything to do with music, dancing and singing. I read a lot and love to cook.
