Ian Brown

BTEC Course Co-ordinator

Ian has got a wealth of experience in outdoor education.  He was the Head of PE at Bournemouth’s largest school for many years and is a force to be reckoned with!

He is the driving force behind our very successful BTEC Course and is a great motivational teacher.

A very keen windsurfer but he will only go on the water when “it is blowing old boots” (technical term for very windy).

He has been known to break a few things in his time, including a few hips, but he isn’t that old, honest.
