New Ipswich School to Be Named After Robson
Thursday, 6th Jun 2019 10:31
A new Ipswich school is set to be named after legendary Blues and England manager Sir Bobby Robson.
The Sir Bobby Robson School will be built on the former Holywells High site in Lindbergh Road.
The special school, for 60 children aged eight to 16 with social, emotional and mental health needs, is due to open in 2020 with the name having been chosen by parents and community leaders.
Mark Robson, Sir Bobby’s son, said: ”I'm sure dad would be as pleased as we all are to have his name associated with such an important educational facility.
"Ipswich will always have a special place in the hearts of our family and it's an honour and a privilege to have a new school named after dad here."
Tim Coulson, chief executive of the Unity Schools Partnership, who will run the school, added: "Sir Bobby's name stands for facing triumph and adversity with the same passion and enthusiasm."

There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
