Staff at the Prep held a gala dinner to celebrate the upcoming retirement of three highly respected members of staff, who have nearly 80 years of combined service.
In June Mr John Baker, who has taught CDT at the Prep for 28 years, Mrs Fiona Busbridge who has been at the Prep for 20 years and is currently a Year 4 teacher and Mr Derek Maddock who leaves after 34 years as Head of History at the Prep will retire. All of these teachers have instilled the generations of children who have passed through their classrooms with a life-long love of learning.
Mr Jonathan Whybrow was effusive in his praise for the combined contribution of these three much loved and valued long serving members of staff. He commented: "Not only have they taught their subjects to an incredibly high standard, but they have contributed so much more. The whole school community wishes them a happy retirement."
