Head pays tribute to staff with 61 years of service
Published 05/08/13



TWO long-serving teachers have left the Piggott School in Wargrave.

English teacher Jane Schnepp served 41 years and Nick Mortimer, first head of the school’s ICT department, served 20 years.

Mrs Schnepp was appointed in 1972 after mentioning in her job application a desire to commit to the wider education of children through drama and media studies.

Headteacher Hilary Winter said: “She has never disappointed us and her initial ‘promise’ has been more than borne out and demonstrated to countless students over the 41 years of service to our community. Everyone who has been taught by or worked with her is grateful for her tireless effort to achieve the best for everyone in her care.

“There is no one who now begrudges her retirement and the opportunity for her to make more time for herself. It will be a richly deserved retirement and one which we all wish will be very long and happy.”


Mr Mortimer taught at Maiden Erlegh School for 15 years before joining the Piggott School in 1993.

Mrs Winter said he was a “remarkable example of dedication and commitment to generations of students, their families and the profession”. She added: “He has also been inspirational to many inexperienced teachers who have modelled their own expertise on the natural skills that Mr Mortimer has used and developed in his own classroom.

“He has graciously accepted that, when we are undergoing an inspection of any kind, it is to his classroom that we direct the inspectors who want to see examples of outstanding teaching.

“He has never let us down and for this we will always be grateful.”
