Mr Steven Capstick
On behalf of all the 100s of staff and 100s of students who have been part of Helsby High School since 1997, I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Capstick.
Mr Capstick joined Helsby as Deputy Head Teacher 18 years ago. It was his 4th Cheshire school after Knutsford, Neston and Lymm.
Since then Mr Capstick has been a valued and supportive colleague. He is genuinely interested in other people and always looks to seek the best in people. In his dealings with staff and students he is always balanced, fair and considered.
Across the school Mr Capstick has always been visible out and about, talking and listening to young people. He always has the interest of the whole school community at his heart.
I know he will be really missed in the History department and across the school.
On behalf of everyone, I would like to wish Mr Capstick a long and happy retirement and best wishes to the Trotters (Bolton Wanderers) on the golf course!
I would also like to say thank you and best wishes to Mr P Conn. Mr Conn has covered two periods of maternity cover in our Modern Languages department and has been a part of a number of visits and exchanges during that time. We all wish Mr Conn well for the future.
We also wish Mrs B Hunter well as she starts her maternity leave.
I would like to wish everyone associated with Helsby High School an enjoyable May half term break.
Mr John Dowler
