Veteran Saltus teacher calls it a day

Saltus maths teacher Alan Boardman has announced his retirement after 31 years at the school.

An avid Manchester United fan, Mr Boardman is leaving the island to take up residence in the Pyrenees.

Besides teaching maths, the Englishman has coached the school football and cricket teams.

A keen traveller, Mr Boardman has also accompanied students on several school trips.

“I really enjoyed teaching,” he said. “When you are with the children it is very fulfilling.” He said he bumps into alumni he taught as children 30 years ago and “they still call me Mr Boardman”.

He intended to retire after 30 years' service but was asked to stay on for one more year. He will call it day and leave for France in June.

Head of School, Ted Staunton, said: “Alan has been a Saltus stalwart. He has done his profession proud and the school will not be the same without him. He has done a magnificent job and will be sadly missed.”
