Matthew Robinson

Head of Boarding and Deputy Safeguarding Lead

I am delighted to have taken on the exciting and fulfilling role of Head of Boarding at West Buckland School. I am responsible for the care and success of what is a very vibrant boarding community and try help facilitate our pupils to reach their full potential. This means I work with the boarding staff to support the boarders and ensure the opportunities for our pupils are varied and beneficial for their development. Importantly I provide a key link between the academic and pastoral side of the regular school day.

Additionally, I teach in the PE department and am married to Michelle who is an Assistant Houseparent in Parker’s boarding house. We have three children; Reese, Eden and Elijah who are all very happy pupils at the school. In my spare time, I like to cook West Indian food and keep fit.
