Dominic Robson

Dominic has been the Headteacher of Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School since September 2012. He studied at History BA(Hons) at Durham University, and stayed on to study for a PGCE in History and Religious Education.


He began his teaching career at Bishop Walsh School, where he became Head of History and Politics. He moved to Bishop Vesey’s in 2001 as Head of History and Humanities. Between 2003 and 2010, he was Head of Sixth Form, and Deputy Headteacher between 2009 and 2012.


In 2009 he attained the National Professional Qualification in Headship (NPQH). As part of this course, and was fortunate enough to be mentored by, Mr Kamal Hanif OBE, as well as our very own Mr Iddon, Dominic’s predecessor as Headteacher.


Family time is very important to him. To relax, he often enjoys football, playing the piano, going to the cinema and watching live theatre and concerts. A self-professed avid reader, Dominic follows current affairs and political debates with a keen interest.


His hope for all our students here at BVGS is that they enjoy making the most of the inspiring and excellent academic and social opportunities that the Vesey Experience offers them.
