OPs Welcomed Back To Work For The Foundation

This autumn, the Foundation is delighted to have welcomed back to the fold a number of former pupils and staff.

At Princethorpe College, OP Katie Strange (Class of 2015), has joined the Reception team. Katie stayed on at Princethorpe as a Teaching Assistant after finishing Sixth Form but then went to work at Abraxas Cookshop for six and a half years. However, the lure of Princethorpe remained strong and we are delighted she has returned to the College as part of our friendly front of house team. 

OP Tom Gleghorn (Class of 2000) has also returned to Princethorpe College as Head of Academic PE. Tom studied at Exeter University, and then trained as a PE teacher. He enjoyed a year out travelling the world visiting Australia and South America. He then worked in schools in London, Coventry and Rugby before the pull of Princethorpe brought him back here. It is great to have Tom working in our talented PE and Sports team.    

OP Lily Draper (Class of 2023) has stayed on at Princetorpe College to support us as a Graduate Teaching Assistant this year.

OP Lizzie Hester (Class of 2012) will return after half term as a teacher of Religious Studies while OP Dan Hogg, who left the College in 2020, is now supporting the College's IT team. 

OP Charlie Ashley, who left Princethorps in 2008, is back working within the Foundation as Form Teacher for Junior 4 at Crackley Hall School. He has been joined there by recent leaver OP Eve Farquharson (Class of 2023) and OP Matthew Duigan (Class of 2018) who are both working as part of the school's Teaching Assistant team.

Three former staff have also chosen to return to Princethorpe. We are delighted to have Kate Ingram back teaching Spanish, Aimee Brookes working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and we are also pleased to welcome back Catherine Morrish who was previously a trainee teacher here.

It is fabulous to see the Foundation's Spirit of Family ethos in action and its deeply rooted strong ties evident in our community. We wish all our returning OPs and staff a successful year.
