“When I started 12 years ago I really had no idea what the job entailed (though I thought I did!). I vividly remember walking up the path, looking at the school and thinking, ‘I am responsible for all this and everyone in it.’ It was a sobering and slightly overwhelming thought and a responsibility

“I have carried ever since. I have been lucky to have the wholehearted support of the school Governors and staff, both teaching and non-teaching. I have made many friendships which will not end with my leaving and I thank all the staff and parents who have helped me in my aim to make sure that every child can shine, whatever their talent.”

Concluding the popular principle, teacher and colleague said: “Finally, to the children – you are what makes this school. You are why I have come to work every day and your success is the best reward I could ever have. Work hard and I wish you good luck in the future. I will be looking out to see how you are all getting on. Make yourselves proud!“
