What says..

The school has clocked up a number of trailblazing firsts. It was one of the first schools to convert to an academy; one of the first to become a college of performing arts, one of the first to be designated an outstanding teaching school, and latterly, one of the first to create a multi-academy trust.

Since 2002, Peter Rubery BEd (MMU) MEd (Liverpool) MBA (LINCOLN) FRSA, previously headmaster of Ercall Wood Technology College, Wellington; joined as headmaster, a role which evolved into principal and finally into the grandly titled executive principal and CEO of the multi-academy trust of which Fallibroome is part.

Although understated in his chat, it is clear Peter Rubery is one of life’s quiet innovators. Pseudo-corporate lingo about ‘continuous improvement’ might roll off his tongue (he did an MBA in international educational leadership), but there is nothing empty about his rhetoric; under his visionary leadership, the school has clocked up a number of trailblazing firsts. It was one of the first schools to convert to an academy; one of the first to become a college of performing arts, one...
