Mr Robb is joined in Oswestry by his wife Lucinda and children Miranda, Hector and Fergus who enjoy being at Bellan House, Oswestry School’s preparatory department, which is located in the centre of Oswestry five minutes walk from the senior school.
On arrival at Oswestry School, Mr Robb said: "I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich history. Exciting times lie ahead and with the continued investment and commitment to improving the wonderful site, so close to the town, I am determined to carry on the fantastic work that has been completed over the last few years."
