Parc Eglos teacher Lucy Draycott will be moving on to take up a deputy head post in Falmouth 14 years at Parc Eglos school.

A member of the school leadership team, she is moving to become deputy headteacher at St Mary’s Primary School in Falmouth.

Mr Dye described her as a “fantastic, caring teacher,” adding: “We will miss her greatly for so many reasons – the ability to smile when times are tough, her great, zany sense of humour, her professionalism and her passion and support for Parc Eglos School.

“On a personal level, I am losing a great colleague who always gave everything in a sincerely honest way, always putting the children of our school first.”
