The senior deputy headmistress of Wisbech Grammar School gave her final speech on Monday ahead of her retirement in July.

Christine Noxon addressed pupils and staff in an assembly and reflected over the past 19 years at the school.

“I have been doing a job I love which has brought new challenges every day,” Miss Noxon said.

In the speech, she spoke about her own senior school years and her early career before getting into teaching in April 1982 at Stamford High School thanks to a love of modern foreign languages.

Miss Noxon joined Wisbech Grammar School in September 1997.

She said that after retiring, she has plans to take up Finnish and the flute, go travelling and continue her volunteer work with the elderly.

Tim McConnell-Wood will take over the role as deputy head.
