The vice principal of a Pudsey school has left a pair of “big boots” to fill after retiring at the end of term.
David Newman, who earlier in his career, taught classics across the country at a number of highly reputable independent schools, has bid farewell to Fulneck School after four years in post.
Fulneck School Principal Deborah Newman said:
“He has had a huge impact as Vice Principal, Head of Senior School and as a Religious Studies teacher. David’s enjoyment of the outdoors and love of classics created many memorable field trips across Europe for the students.
“He could be relied upon to keep everyone positive and upbeat and he has been a huge inspiration to both students and staff alike.
“David has been a key member of our school community and we are all extremely grateful for what he has done over his wonderful career here at Fulneck School. We wish him well for the future.”
Founded in 1753, Fulneck School is an historic independent school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18.
