"My years here have given me the privilege and the pleasure of seeing thousands of young boys develop and flourish into confident, successful young men. It is watching young people grow and develop, achieving their potential, realising their ambitions, becoming responsible young adults and citizens that drives every teacher.

"I have learnt a huge amount during my time here and I am very proud of the part I have played in making Hitchin Boys' School the successful, popular and happy school that it is today.

"I will of course be sad to leave behind so many wonderful people: students, parents and colleagues. Nonetheless, I am excited about the future and delighted to be moving on to a wholly new and different challenge."
