Jon Beard, Saltus’ Deputy Head, has been at the school for 40 years and said: “I know it might sound a bit cliched, but I have genuinely enjoyed every day. There are so many memories, so many students who have excelled and so many positive changes at the school.

“From the building of the sports facilities in the late 1970s including a gym and a pool, to our latest projects there has been so much that has gone on that is so positive for Saltus, and for Bermuda.

“I started my career as a PE teacher, then ran the SGY [university prep] programme, and now into my present role. The constant has been terrific students, and a great staff. They make it a pleasure to come to work. The real bonus is seeing how successful our students become, and seeing alumni contributing to the community.”
