Merchant Taylors’ bids farewell to two long-serving staff this Christmas.
Merchant Taylors’ bids farewell to two long-serving and much valued staff this Christmas.
Helen Irwin, Head of Business and Economics at MTGS retires after 23 years at school. She has also been our first female Contingent Commander of the CCF. Helen says:
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at MTS as a teacher and as a member of our fantastic CCF. It is hard to think I have spent so many years at MTS, but as many people say, ‘time flies when you are enjoying things’. I have enjoyed my time at MTS and I will naturally miss both the staff and pupils. Thank you to all who have made my time here so memorable.’
Jo Jones has been a SENCO at Stanfield for 18 years; she says:
‘I moved to the North West in 2002 with my husband’s job, and began coaching rowing at MTS Boat club in March 2002, closely followed by teaching at Stanfield in September the same year. I have many happy memories of those years. The drive to and from Chester/Southport proved too much and I took to coaching in Chester instead. I have made so many friends at Stanfield, and had so much fun teaching the pupils – I will really miss all of the laughter. I have learned so much already about dyslexia from the fabulous pupils I’ve had the privilege to teach, but always keen to take on a challenge. I am leaving to go back to university to study Dyslexia at Masters level. I am a firm believer in life-long learning and hope that I have been able to inspire others to love learning too.
David Norton also retires as Head of Finance after 9 years at Merchant Taylors’. Many thanks to all of them for their hard work and service.
