Andrew Mitchell MP wrote the following about Mrs Hanks and Mr Roberts in the ‘Weekly Message to Constituents’…
“I wanted to acknowledge the amazing service and dedication of one of Sutton’s Primary Head Teachers, Beverly Hanks, Head Teacher at New Hall Primary school in Falcon Lodge, who is retiring at the end of this current term.
Beverly transformed the school she took over and it is unrecognisable today. Through her leadership she has ensured that hundreds of children have had the best start in their educational life.
Also retiring is Roy Roberts – one of the longest serving governors at New Hall. Roy has dedicated a significant proportion of his life to Sutton both as Governor and previously through his role as a ward support officer.”
