Robyn Starr

Community Governor

Member of the Strategy Group

Chair of the Learning and Development Team


I attended STS from 1995 to 2002 and credit the school with much of my success.  I left school at 18 to complete a degree in Drama and Film Studies at the University of Kent and then went on to gain a PGCE in Citizenship Education at Canterbury Christ Church University.  I am currently studying with the University of Chester for a PG Cert in Executive and Life Coaching.

I have eight years’ classroom experience in several schools across Dover, Deal and Shepway and have taught a wide range of subjects and led teams of varying sizes during that time. 

More recently I have left the classroom to become a Leadership Development Coach for a national education charity.  I work with teachers in some of the South East’s most challenging schools.

I wanted to be a governor at STS for the same reason I became a teacher – I loved school.  I believe wholeheartedly that every child should have access to not just a wonderful set of teachers, but an entire community that is welcoming, supportive and challenges them to be the very best they can be.
