The Piggott School in Wargrave has bid farewell to two of its longest serving teachers.
English teacher Jane Schnepp and head of Chemistry Nick Mortimer have nearly 80 years’ teaching experience between them, and both retired when the school year ended on July 19.
The whole of the school, in Twyford Road, gathered in front of the sports hall as headteacher Hilary Winter delivered farewell speeches.
Jane spent her entire teaching career at the school, having joined in 1972.
Mrs Winter said: “Mrs Schnepp has never disappointed us.
“It will be a richly deserved retirement and one which we all wish will be very long and happy.”
Nick started his teaching career in 1976 at Maiden Erlegh School in Earley.
He later joined The Piggott School in 1992, and has been teaching there ever since.
Mrs Winter said: “He has never let us down and for this we will always be grateful.”
The UK has voted to leave the European Union in yesterday's referendum - and while the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead fell into the remain camp, Slough voted to support a Brexit.
