A long-standing leader of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award at the school, Mary Barrington, is also among the leavers.
At a ceremony staged to mark their farewells they were joined by headmaster Nicholas Hammond, who is leaving the school after six years to become headmaster of The British School of Paris and his wife, Nathalie, who has served as the academic secretary.
Also moving on are head of sixth form Deiniol Williams, Spanish teacher Jane Braybrook, examinations secretary and charities coordinator Jan Wildman, design and technology teacher Thomas Banham and boys’ physical education and games coach Adrian Tomlins.
Another long-serving leaver is Magdalene House preparatory school classroom assistant Sarah Kennaway (30 years).
