“I have gained so much from leading this phenomenal community and have much to be grateful for as a result of my time here.

“There are too many people to thank for their support and encouragement during a time of leadership, which has included the Covid pandemic, a change of ownership and the challenges currently facing our sector with the prospect of VAT on school fees.
