Mrs Barlow joined the pre-prep department from Bedfield Primary and the college said she “brought her own special brand of warmth, care and dedication” to benefit children, parents and staff over the years.

Ruth Steggles, head of pre-prep commented: “Mrs Barlow might say she ‘just wanted to be a good class teacher’ but every child who has been taught by her, every parent who has been supported and helped and every colleague who has worked with her knows Mrs Barlow is so much more than just a teacher.

“She will support you, nurture you and be on your side as well as help you to learn. We are so grateful to Mrs Barlow for everything she has done over the last 16 years. We will miss her and we wish her a very happy retirement.”
