Mrs Ruth Ripman
Ruth started her career in corporate banking and, later, institutional stockbroking in London. She moved to Norfolk in 1991, and took an extended career break to bring up her three children, all of whom attended Town Close. In the last ten years, Ruth has been a governor in three state-funded schools, one village primary, a high school in Thetford, where she was safeguarding governor, and a High school in Norwich where she was chair of governors. Her experience in schools led her to start Teacher Training in 2018 and she has worked as a part-time primary school teacher since. Ruth has a particular interest in children’s literature and, in her spare time, loves travelling, playing bridge, walking and anything food related.
