A Welwyn Garden City headteacher has announced today that he is set to retire this year.
Mr Peter Brown, the headteacher of Stanborough School, has announced to staff, parents, pupils and governors that he is retiring at the end of August after 15 years at the school.
The former art teacher saw many changes at Stanborough including the school being awarded a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted in 2014 following many years of improvements.
Stanborough became a Specialist Maths and Computing School soon after Mr Brown arrived, and he also saw the school through the process of converting into an academy in 2013.
Mr Brown said: “It has been my great privilege and pleasure to work with the students, staff, parents and governors at Stanborough, in leading the school through such an important time in our long history.
