After spending almost 25 years working
at the school, one ofHazel Webb our longest-serving members of support staff has retired. At the end of October Colyford resident, Mrs Hazel Webb, left the school.

Beginning her career in February 1991, almost at the beginning of the IT revolution, Mrs Webb spent much of her time in ‘reprographics’ and word processing.

As time passed, she became head of the Resources Department in the school and the operation moved to a bespoke area adjacent to the library, away from the glorified store cupboard she once occupied!

Not only has she been a vital part of the school’s working day for staff and students requiring help with their work, she was also the main first aid post in the school, regularly dealing with nose bleeds, grazed knees, fainting incidents or broken bones.

Mrs Webb described one of her fondest memories of the school as socialising by the side of the swimming pool, previously located on the site of the Sixth Form Study Centre, during the summer montRetirement Day 22-10-15 (1)hs.

Keeping an ever-watchful eye over a misbehaving laminator, Mrs Webb said the best part of her job was “meeting everyone”, describing both staff and students as, “all lovely!”.

Mrs Webb now looks forward to spending more time with her grandchildren, exploring the great outdoors and getting to grips with her leaving present – a lovely state-of-the-art sewing machine.
