  • Thank You Rev Sarah!

    Published 06/07/21

    Our School Chaplain, the Reverend Sarah Norbron retired at the end of term after 32 years at Gordon's. Rev Sarah as she is fondly known, turned her hand to food technology; textiles; design technology; PSHE; charity; cover teaching; counselling; lay preaching and finally chaplaincy since her arrival here in 1989. During her stint in design technology her trademark became the duck bookends that all the students made and that now adorn hundreds of homes! We thank her for all she has done for the school and wish her all the best.
