The school would like to offer their best wishes to Mrs Jacobs who is leaving today. She has contributed so much in her time here, particularly in the fundraising for the Guide Dogs over the last year. There will be a new appointment from September, and in the meantime Year 11 will be supported by the wider pastoral team.
It is inconceivable that the school could run at all without the sheer industriousness of our wonderful Pastoral Team. Their time seems to stretch for us all
- the pupils in their care, the admin staff doing their work, the Directors of course for whom their invaluable help is a minute by minute mission and the senior management who rely on them like London taxis for their limitless knowledge.
They support our young people; they support some of us 'older' people on the staff so we should never forget to make sure we are supporting th
em with their heavy load. Whether it's guide dog puppies, lost kit, lost guinea pigs or seriously lost tempers, they help us, calm us, collect the money and talk kindly on the phone home to lessen the bombshell!
Thank you one and all!
