It is with great sadness that we say a fond farewell to Mr Julian Spicer after eleven years of teaching at Bridgnorth Endowed School.
Head of maths, Mr Hughes, commented: “He has inspired many pupils to think deeper about mathematics and develop their internal dialogue around the subject. His enthusiasm, experience and ties will certainly be sorely missed.”
Fellow maths teacher, Mr Middleton, voiced what many colleagues thought: “First and foremost, he is a nice guy. Caring, compassionate and always willing to listen, to empathise and to help people out, be they students or colleagues.”
“Secondly, he was a great teacher and a brilliant mathematician. His ability to analyse the complexities of mathematical conundrums or the everyday practicalities of modern life are second to none.”
“Julian has been a respected teacher and colleague – a ‘go to person’ if you’ve needed help or advice and countless students have benefitted from his expertise and encouragement on their educational journey.”
Mr Spicer will be greatly missed at BES, by both students and colleagues, and we wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement.
