Sarah was appointed to the Physics Department six years ago following a chance encounter at an Easter Bonnet parade and a memorable interview lesson using penguins and cricket balls to show that Physics really can be fun. Six years on and nothing has changed. Sarah’s lessons are still great fun, exciting, relevant and innovative. She has embraced change and was a leading light of the digital learning revolution. She has taken great care in her pastoral duties with all her charges well looked after and, in any time left, helps with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (she is out on the hills with the Silver Expedition team as I write this). She has looked after Lower School Tennis, taken part in Ardèche Water Sports trips, Cheltenham Science Festivals and to CERN. She also ran Lower School Science and the Science Club. If you haven’t attended a Science Club activity then you have surely missed out – weird, wacky and above all great fun. Her academic results were very good too and offer a true reflection of her talent and commitment! We wish Sarah every success in her new school in Birmingham and hope that she won’t be a stranger to RGS in the future.
Dr Howard Smith, Head of Science
