The winter should be drawing to a close now but the signs are that it will last a bit longer. This has been, by our standards, a very cold winter with temperatures seldom above 5 degrees, even in the daytime, for almost 3 months.
The famous English spring flowers are over a month late. No daffodils yet, only a few brave snow drops and crocuses.
Today the weather has been beautiful, so much so that students have been playing table tennis in the garden. Then at four o’clock there was a snow storm!
There have been some major staff changes at the School during the winter. Anna Wills, our Operations Manager for over ten years, has had a baby and has decided to leave the School. When she finishes maternity leave she will take up a post as Principal in an adult college near Brighton. However, she will be back in Salisbury in the summer to run our residential centres.
Her husband, Mike, who was Promotions Assistant, will be a “home husband” and will take care of the baby.
There are therefore two new members of staff at the School.
