The “Lutton Library”, so titled by the Board of Governors in recognition of over 40 years of service by Mrs Lutton, was unveiled at the school last week.

Appointed principal in May, 2012, Mrs Lutton has taught at the school since January, 1974.

Explaining the motivation behind the decision to name the school’s library in her honour, Chair of the Board of Governors, Margaret Thompson, described Mrs Lutton as “a dedicated and highly skilled educationalist who has always lived and breathed the school”.

Mrs Thompson said: “Her sheer hard work and determination as a leader of both the teaching and support staff has put Cambridge House firmly on track achieving excellent results in public examinations and promoting high standards both in teaching and learning as well as the life skills and outside interests that make a young person a well rounded individual.

“The impact of her work has seen thousands of young people benefit from her experience and knowledge to gain qualifications and confidence to shape their lives.

“I would say that her empathic approach to the many issues that affect the lives of our pupils has been key to this success. We are proud to designate the Lutton Library and I know that our staff and pupils join me in thanking her for all she has done and will continue to do for Cambridge House Grammar,“ Mrs Thompson said.
