She “always loved the big Christmas plays” while other highlights include taking pupils to Hinning House, Wigan Council’s outdoor education centre in the Lake District.

Susan said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it but it’s time to start a new adventure” and is looking forward to rekindling her hobby of painting, doing gardening and spending more time with her son, two daughters and grandson.
