Farewells and Departures

I would like to thank all those staff who are leaving for their dedication and hard work over their years at Verulam and to wish them well for the future.

Mr Tang, our excellent cover supervisor is leaving to train as a Management Consultant, whilst Mr Benger from Learning Support is beginning teacher training in September.

After 2 years’ service, Ms Camporese is returning to Italy.

The Science Department sees a number of departures: Mr McLaughlin is joining Parmiters’ School and Miss Hickey, St Albans Boys. I would like to congratulate Ms Henderson who has gained promotion to a Head of Science post in Manchester, whilst Ms Cantwell is relocating to an exciting position in a specialist science school in the South West.

Having trained with us, Ms Thomas has been promoted to Head of Year 7 at Samuel Ryder, whilst Mr Wallace joins Beaumont School. Ms Mitchell is joining St Margaret’s School in Bushey.

After nearly 10 years’ service as a Geographer, Head of Year and Head of Lower Sixth, Mr Perryman is beginning a well deserved retirement. I would like to thank him for his enormous contribution to the school as teacher, pastoral leader and all the extra curricular work he has done. A truly committed teacher who has made a massive impact on many pupils’ lives.

Ms Flint leaves the History Department having gained an Assistant Headship at Onslow St Audrey School in Hatfield. In her new post she will work for Mr Bullock, who after 8 1/2 years’ of energetic and excellent deputy Headship, has rightfully gained the post of Headteacher of Onslow St Audrey School. Mr Bullock will be sorely missed by the many pupils and parents he has supported, the classes he has taught and the teams he has coached. I am sure the entire school will join me in wishing him well and every success in his new role.

Finally after 13 years’ of outstanding service, Mrs Chehade will be retiring in the Summer. She was the school’s first Business Manager and has defined this role. I would like to wish her all the best for her retirement.
