As our academic year draws to a close we have much to celebrate and many happy memories. Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the outstanding leadership of Mr. Andy Puttock over the past four years. As you may know he is not leaving the Nord Anglia family of schools but taking up a new role as Director of Education. We hope that he will come and visit us many times, he will be most welcome.
As the new Principal of our school it has been a great help working closely with Andy over the last few weeks to ensure a well informed and smooth transition. I would also like to thank the many parents who have come to see me. To have a good understanding of our parent body is very important to enable the school to meet the needs and aspirations of our families and students.
Most importantly our students have enjoyed another fabulous year. They have excelled in so many fields it is impossible to list them all. I have attended many celebration events and have listened in awe as their achievements have been described. These achievements have been in their academic studies, sport, music, the arts to name just a few and we are justly proud of them.
Over the summer vacation I will be working with colleagues to put into place a smooth opening to the new academic year and setting the priorities to build upon the successes of the school so that we can improve still further. We should always seek to do better; to challenge ourselves and our students to set the highest standards and achieve our ambitious goals.
I would like to wish you all the very best for the summer vacation and look forward to welcoming you all back, refreshed, for what will be an exciting, new academic year.
Mr. Richard Thornhill
