Fittingly, it marked the end of an era as Charles Foulds retires as Headmaster.
He was given leaving gifts from the children and he and his wife were presented with two white doves to release as a symbol of freedom, peace and harmony. Headmaster Charles Foulds commented; "We are extremely lucky to have such a beautiful place within our 120 acres, it is unique and very special and will enhance pupils' understanding of the natural world and bring enormous benefits to all children at the school."
Charles Foulds brings vast experience of independent boarding schools to his role as a governor at Cundall. He was Head of Modern Languages, Housemaster and Assistant Headmaster at Stonyhurst College from 1979-1995. He left to become the Headmaster of the Westminster Cathedral Choir School before becoming Headmaster at Grace Dieu. He was a more than useful cricketer and still excels as a cricket coach. One former colleague described Charles as 'one of the most impressive individuals that I had the privilege to work with during a career spanning nearly forty years'. He will be familiar to many at Cundall Manor, having until recently taught RS at the school prior to his retirement. Charles is the Chairman of the school's Education Committee and will also oversee the growth and development of music at the school.
