Goodbye to Sarah Giddings

22 Oct 2020
Staff News

Sarah joined AGS in 2001 and left in the summer of 2020.   Mrs Wilkinson, Teacher of Food Technology describes Sarah's time at AGS.  " Both of these years have marked significant global issues that have forever focussed the way we view the world.   The wake of change from 9-11 in 2001 may now be receding but the effects of global pandemic in 2020 will continue to affect us for many years to come.   Sarah’s contribution to AGS has similarly had a significant effect on the lives of both students and her colleagues.  

As a tutor she accompanied two groups to the Ardeche in France on PGL activity holidays. She continues to take an active interest in the lives and fortunes of her first tutor group. She has managed and designed the teaching of resistant materials from 2004, designing new projects year by year at each Key stage.  She has also been seamlessly in charge of running of Key stage 3 D&T since 2008, no mean task in a rotation of 4 subject specialisms.  She produced numerous challenging work booklets in total that was overseeing the design education of 3,400 boys.  A legacy for the department and in boys’ lives.

In 2016 Sarah took over the EES scheme, winning the Innovation award.  She has been a supportive colleague to many of us and will be much missed.  We wish Sarah all the best in her new school. "
