Sadly, our colleague and dear friend, Maggie Philpott unexpectedly passed away on Good Friday 2019. Maggie started teaching at Barking Abbey in February 1988 and retired in July 2016; the care and dedication that she showed to the students, department and all colleagues during her 28 years in the Maths Department was incredible. Maggie did a lot behind the scenes and the pupils were always at the forefront of her mind when making any decisions. Maggie Philpott will forever be in our hearts.
