Ben Coombes
Deputy Head

I have been involved in education for 35 years in a variety of roles with 15 years of senior management experience across a wide range of different provisions.

My most recent role was working for Somerset County Council in their SEMH and MMH young people's provision.

I am excited about joining the team at Wessex Lodge and working with the all the young people.

In my spare time I can be seen on my bike trundling through the lanes or walking my dog Tarka. I enjoy reading, especially autobiographies in between trying to do some DIY, not very well.
