We would like to congratulate Dr Spencer Pitfield, Head of Instrumental Studies, who was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list for political service.

Dr Pitfield commented: “It truly is a great honour. I was so very surprised to be recognised in this this way and it hasn’t really quite sunk in yet. My family and I are so very grateful for all the wonderful messages of congratulations we have received from so many people”.
