School gets set for farewell

A TEACHER at Hanham Woods Academy will be retiring this summer after 36  years in teaching.

Dom Singleton started his teaching career Moulsham High School, Chelmsford in 1988, before Joining Bristol’s Hanham Woods, where he has taught for the past 31 years.

Looking ahead to his retirement, Dom, who is subject lead for humanities and history at Hanham Woods Academy, said: “During lockdown I became very interested in wildlife photography and I want to pursue this interest further and become better at it.

“I’m also keen to travel more, perhaps exploring my wildlife interest further while doing this.”

Steve O’Callaghan, Hanham Woods Principal, said: “Dom has been a valued member of the team here at Hanham Woods for more than 30 years, educating thousands of students that have come through the academy.

“His impact as a curriculum leader has been far-reaching and he leaves a strong legacy within the academy. 

“We will be forever indebted to his loyal service to the academy and the wider community.

“I’m sure everyone at Hanham Woods will join me in wishing Dom the very best wishes for the future.”
