Every pupil, parent or friend of Claires Court Senior Boys knows we are blessed by having the most Amazing School Receptionist (ASR), Mrs Sharon Adams. Once of the Thames Valley Police, Sharon joined our employ initially as part of the catering team and then moved to her current role in 2003. As ASR she has rescued countless bags, pupils, staff and parents from umpteen calamities, has been a fount of all knowledge and sage advice for any question from the encyclopaedia of ‘unknown unknowns’ that bedevil school and family life. She is married to Shaun and has 2 grown-up children, Nicola and Mark (CCSB 2004-08, now following a teaching career in Turkey). Sharon and Shaun are moving to Warwickshire at the end of this month, and so leaves her front of office desk that has been such a comfort for us (if not for her, being right near the front door on winter mornings!). Any parents and friends wishing to drop in to see Mrs Adams are very welcome throughout the week beginning 25 March.
