Head of Faculty for English and Drama
I am Mr Robertson and I’m head of the English and Drama Faculty. You can usually find me somewhere between the English office and Room D13 on the upper floor of D Block. I will be the one with grey hair, a blue water bottle and a black shirt.
I have a pretty big team to manage; including me, there are currently sixteen members of staff who regularly teach either English or Drama. They’re a talented bunch and most are far better read than I am.
I have classes in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 and I tend to teach English Language at A Level as opposed to literature. I especially enjoy Macbeth, which students' study at GCSE Level, and A Level Language Investigations, of which there are a really good mix this year, covering everything from football commentaries to Married First Sight.
A long-time fan of the show, I also run a Countdown club on Tuesday lunchtimes in D13. Do pop in if you fancy a game!
