Mr Robin Norgreen
Robin first moved to Slinfold in 1989 and both his children attended the primary school. After an initial career in the finance sector he entered the world of education, teaching foreign languages at secondary school level. He is now retired but hopes that his experience in education and his understanding of the demanding role of teachers of to-day will enable him to make a contribution to the school. He is eager to see the school thrive.
