School Education Engagement Manager
After many years of a PE teacher at a variety of schools, Bob was appointed Deputy Head at Leighton Park School to set up and run a new age 11 – 13 section of the school as well as teaching PE, Games and Geography. Five years later Bob became Head of Gosfield School in Essex, an age 4 – 16 school at which he successfuly opened a 6th form. Whilst there, he was secretary of the East Anglia Independant Schools Association and became an ISJC School Inspector. He left after 5 years to move to Derbyshire and return to his first love – teaching! After two years he was asked to return to management and was appointed Head of Hounslow College in West London.
Unfortunately a year of commuting from Derbyshire proved uninviting and he returned to teaching both primary and secondary before joining By Design Group as Education Manager in 1999, for an exciting career ‘swerve’! Throughout his career, Bob has played and coached sport – he won the English Schools discus and captained the England Schools team, played soccer, rugby, cricket and continued to throw until his early sixties, whilst he has coached teams and individuals at school, club, national and international level.
