Ms Claire Eales-White retires
This term we say goodbye to our much loved Head of Sixth Form, Ms Eales-White, as she embarks on her well-deserved retirement.
From the moment I walked into Plymouth High I have felt the warmth of the welcome, the enthusiasm of the students, the kindness of my colleagues. From trips to Tuscany, Berlin, or the Model United Nations in Bath, to memorable House Festivals conjured up like magic by enterprising House Captains, I have seen the value of our wonderful motto, For Life not school we learn. I have thoroughly enjoyed challenging the students to aim high, beyond what they expect of themselves, and been thrilled to see them go out into the world confident, ambitious and ready to contribute to the world around them. That is the greatest reward a teacher can have, and even better when they return to tell you all about it, and to feel you had one small part of their happiness and success.
I wish every student the very best for their future; and every member of staff a huge thank you for their support in helping my time at Plymouth High be so happy and rewarding.
