Double retirement for West Cumbria teaching couple

A Broughton couple have stepped down from their positions as assistant headteachers.

TOGETHER: Teachers Jan and Peter Robinson, of Great Broughton, have both retired

Peter Robinson, 55, of Broughton Park, has held his position at Westfield Primary School, Workington, for four years.

He formerly taught at the infant school from 1992 to 2002, when it was merged with the junior school.

Wife Jan, 55, worked at Fairfield Junior School, Cockermouth, for 12 years and was its assistant head for three years before it merged with the infants in September 2013 to form Fairfield Primary School.

She moved over to the primary school as its assistant head.

She also taught at Westfield Junior School for 13 years.

The couple, who each have around 30 years of teaching experience, met when they were studying at college in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

They married in 1984 and have two daughters Anna and Kate.

Jan hopes to continue to do supply teaching and Mr Robinson has fully retired to spend more time on their garden and to go walking.

Peter, who was brought up in Keswick, said: “I have loads of lovely memories to take with me.”

Jan said: “I will miss the variety of the job and working with the children at Fairfield.”
