Staff Leavers 2013: Catherine Beckett

Bidding a fond farewell to Catherine Beckett
Music is a significant strength of the Prep School.  Having shown herself to be a talented classroom music teacher in the Senior School, Catherine moved to the Prep School in 2006 where she proved an outstanding Director of Music.

Her creativity, energy and enthusiasm have been key factors in the development of the department. She has a special gift for drawing the best from her pupils from the Nursery to Prep 6, all of whom have been desperate to please her, and somehow managed to include everyone in her choirs and concerts, even if they were not natural singers and performers, without compromising her high expectations!
