The former headmistress of the Lower School has been awarded a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the national Independent Schools Awards.
Mrs Felicity Taylor won the award for her leadership and vision in raising academic standards, while growing girls’ confidence and resilience with exciting activities.
Because Mrs Taylor is currently in Australia, her award was collected by Headmistress of the Senior School Mrs Sarah Clark. This was witnessed by over 300 people gathered to celebrate the sector’s achievements at the awards ceremony held in Nottingham.
Mrs Taylor’s vision is now part of the DNA of the school and new Headmistress Rachel Cookson is now building on her legacy to create even more opportunities for adventure for her pupils.
Mrs Cookson said: “This award is such a wonderful thing for Mrs Taylor to have received at the end of a successful career. We are thrilled for her and it is a great endorsement of our wonderful school and the journey it has taken so far.
“We are already looking forward to inviting Mrs Taylor back into school when she returns from Australia to show her all the fantastic new facilities and additions to the curriculum which demonstrate how her adventurous spirit continues to live on”.
