Mrs Tipper’s farewell

A Shropshire teacher has retired after almost 30 years teaching classes at one of the county’s leading independent schools. Linda Tipper first joined The Old Hall School in 1987 as a supply teacher before joining the team as a full-time member of staff in 1988 – and she retired when the school broke up for summer holidays in July.
“There have been so many changes over the years but I’ve enjoyed seeing those,” said Mrs Tipper. “I suppose one of the most significant changes is the move from the old site to the school’s current home at Stanley Road. This is very different to the quirky character of our former home but the heart of the school is still here in the team that work here.”
The mother of two said she was also lucky to have experienced school life as a parent as well as a teacher: “I’ve worked with some amazing staff over the years and have seen that educational journey from both sides. I say with great sincerity that the school is very much part of who I am… and some of the characters I’ve taught over the years have taught me a thing or two!”
Head Mr Martin Stott paid tribute, saying, “Mrs Tipper has been a very dedicated and extremely hard-working teacher over the years. She’ll be greatly missed by staff, pupils and parents alike, but we wish her every happiness.”
