Dibden Park School
Known locally as ‘The Manor’, Dibden Park School was built 125 years ago by a family who imported and exported tobacco from Southampton docks.
Outcomes First Group bought the building in January 2023 and started work to renovate it into a school. Matthew Robinson was appointed as Head Teacher in May 2023 and immediately started to interview everyone on Teams from his kitchen table because he wasn’t allowed to go to the school during the renovation works.
Ofsted arrived on the 18th of July and everything moved at such a fast pace. Everyone started on the 4th of September and completed the company induction before gathering at the school for further training.
