Ryan Kelsall is the Deputy CEO of Eastern Learning Alliance, a new role that he took on in September 2020, following five extremely successful years as the Principal of Impington Village College (IVC).

During his time as Principal, IVC consistently ranked in the top performing schools in Cambridgeshire and the top 10% nationally, while remaining true to its inclusive ethos annually supporting over 90 students with Educational Health Care Plans (EHCPs). Ryan’s commitment to inclusive practice is well known locally having chaired the East and South Cambridgeshire Inclusion Partnership (ESCIP) for the last four years, ensuring no students in the area have been permanently excluded and that the most vulnerable receive the additional support they require to succeed; based on this success he has recently taken on a similar role for the Cambridge city schools.
