TOWN Council chiefs have honoured retiring Pershore High School headteacher Clive Corbett at a special ceremony.

The Mayor of Pershore, Coun Bob Gilmor, presented Mr Corbett with a replica street sign of the close named after him off Station Road, at the Town Hall on Tuesday.

He also received a framed antique map of Pershore from Deputy Mayor, Coun Chris Parsons and Coun Matthew Winfield.

Mr Corbett joined the school as deputy headteacher in January 1996, before becoming headteacher in September 2002.

He will hand over the reins to current deputy headteacher Phil Hanson in September, for an initial one-year.

“I would like to thank everyone who has made my time in education, and especially my time at Pershore, so pleasurable,” said Mr Corbett.

“I made my way to Pershore via Nunnery Wood High School, starting here in January 1996. During my time in schools, I estimate I’ve had the joy of working with around 10,000 young people and hundreds of wonderful colleagues.

“I would like to thank most of them for the enjoyment and stimulation they brought to my life.

“When I reflect upon the last 21 years at Pershore High School, there have been very few lows and so many highs. I hope I’ve made the school a place of which the area is proud,” he added.
