After ten years and approximately 135 HM assemblies, Mr Murphy-O'Connor gave his last school assembly this morning. He spoke of the pride he feels, on a daily basis, of being HM of such a busy and happy school. Mr Murphy-O'Connor and his family hold a strong bond with Prior Park so it is with sadness he says goodbye. We thank him for his service and wish him every success in his new role at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools.
