ISBA is delighted to welcome Armorel Robinson as its new Director of Professional Development. Armorel was appointed Bursar at Truro School in 2016, having previously been the Bursar and Clerk to Governors at Craigclowan Preparatory School, Perth, for nine years. A Chartered Accountant in KPMG and PWC, she was elected as a Board member of the Scottish Council of Independent Schools (SCIS) in April 2013 and has been both Development Appeal Treasurer and a House parent at Glenalmond College.

Armorel joins ISBA at a time when it is focused on further improving its services and support to members.  She said, "ISBA is renowned in the sector and beyond for delivering high quality professional development training on a range of issues relevant to a wide breadth of senior management staff.  I am looking forward to building on the association's reputation and expanding the reach of training opportunities for members as well as growing our network of expert advisers and making them as accessible as possible to schools".

David Woodgate, CEO of ISBA, added, "with demand from members for our professional development training continue to grow, Armorel brings a wealth of knowledge of independent schools, both day and boarding, as well as an in-depth understanding of the particular needs of their senior management staff to the association.  Her experience will no doubt prove invaluable in helping us further tailor our support to members.  I would like to extend my thanks to Paul Simpson, ISBA's outgoing Director of Training and Consultancy, for his significant contribution to the association over the past nine years and wish him all the best for the future".
