Leaving Staff

The Headmaster paid tribute to two staff who are moving on to pastures new at the end of this term. Gap Student Ned Campbell leaves us after one term of sterling service to go off on his travels around the world.

Mr Hollyer, who has controlled the finances at Caldicott for two generations, is putting down his ledger and entering into happy retirement. Mr Hollyer has contributed hugely to the smooth running of Caldicott and managed our funds wonderfully to allow us to deliver the highest quality of education. All of the school community wish them both the best of luck in their future endeavours.

Staff Superstar

Congratulations to Mr Fildes who recently achieved a Distinction in his Masters in Education - an outstanding achievement!
