As you will be aware, Miss Hargreaves and Mrs Marsh are retiring at the end of the Summer term.
Miss Hargreaves has been a teacher for 41 years and has been part of our Feniscowles family for 38 years. She has been a class teacher, our deputy and our Headteacher for 23 years. During her time, she has had a positive impact on the lives of many children and their families. She will be sadly missed, not just by us in school, but the wider Feniscowles family, who have benefited from her commitment to the whole of this community throughout her years of service. We wish her a long and happy retirement.
Mrs Marsh has been a teacher for 37 years, 34 of those here at Feniscowles. She has taught many, many children in her years as a teacher, helping to develop young minds and instil a love of learning. She has been a valued and respected member of the Feniscowles family and now often sees former pupils at Parents Evening! She will be greatly missed and we wish her also a long and happy retirement.
Due to continued social distancing, we sadly cannot plan the celebrations we had hoped for. However, we can still show our appreciation for the years of service.
