Dear Parents, this evening we will be celebrating a mass to mark the retirement of our Chair of Governors, Clive Taylor. He has served as a governor for 25 years and as Chair for the last 12. In that time, he has helped shape the strategic vision for the school and played a huge part in our success-es. It is worth remembering that all school governors are volunteers, which makes his contribution all the more noteworthy. I will thank him on your behalf this evening and I am sure you will join me in wishing him a long and happy retirement.
