Paul Newman

Group Executive Director - Faculties

P_Newman_Photo.pngAs Executive Director and regional lead for Berkshire, Paul is responsible for contributing to Activate Learning’s strategic plan, as well as overseeing the region’s key stakeholder relationships, student experience, and the overall effective operations. Having worked with Activate Learning for twenty-two years, Paul has progressed through a number of different roles, including technician support, teacher, manager, senior manager, director, assistant principal and principal (interim).

During his time working with Activate Learning, Paul has enjoyed the support and development opportunities available, as well as the chance to be challenged, particularly when overseeing the Bracknell merger. The variety of work, the people (both colleagues and students), the direction of the organisation and having a manager who invests time into his development are also important elements of Paul’s role at Activate Learning. A significant part of Paul’s interest in his work is also the aspect of understanding people, relationships and behaviours.

Outside of work, Paul’s pastimes include home improvement, motorcycling, walking, cycling and spending time with family.
