Margaret Smith

Margaret was the first ever employee of Cavendish School and was recruited in June 2000.  She worked as Office Manager and Book-Keeper until her retirement in the summer of 2008.

Margaret was escorted to work by her faithful border collie, Foxy, who sat with her in the office every day.  Students often turned to Margaret (and Foxy) for a shoulder to cry on or a friendly chat.  She was never too busy to support students and staff and was popular with parents, carers and visitors. Margaret had a wiity and sometimes ascerbic sense of humour and always found something cheerful or humorous about any situation.  She was fiercly loyal to Cavendish students and staff and was fundamental to the ethos developed in the early days.

Margaret passed away following a short illness on 30th March 2019.  We send her family our very sincere condolences.
