Ashby School head teacher Geoff Staniforth will be retiring later this month.

Mr Staniforth says in the Spring Edition of The Ashbeian that he will be leaving on March 26.

Srudents are returning to the classroom on Monday, just under three weeks before Mr Staniforth's retirement, after 36 years in the profession.

In the online school magazine, he writes: "This will be my last contribution to the Ashbeian as I retire on 26 March after 36 very happy years at the school.

"I became a teacher in 1985 because I loved designing and making things and wanted to share my enthusiasm and skills with young people.

"My years in the design and technology faculty are without doubt my fondest. Over the years, I have taught thousands of students in the workshops, helping them to produce some wonderful work. I hope that many of those are still using the skills they learnt and enjoying just making things.

"I will be spending my retirement doing just that in my workshops alongside running some experience days for people who want to have a go on a forge or make something in wood. It has been an honour to work at the school with such a great community of people.

"I will miss it, but the school will move on from strength to strength. I wish you all well."
