Friday, 12 January 2018

Sir Bernard Silverman, Sylvia Moys MBE and Ros Sweet MBE

During the Christmas break we were delighted to learn that Old Citizen Professor Sir Bernard Silverman, was honoured with a Knighthood in the New Year Honours list for public service and services to Statistics. He was Chief Scientific Adviser to the Home Office, taking up his post in April 2010 providing scientific advice and support to three Home Secretaries and their Ministers across the full range of Home Office policy areas. Prior to joining the Home Office, he undertook work for a number of other government departments and public bodies, and has had a distinguished career in academia as a statistician. His main area of current research is modern slavery. The School hopes that his success may inspire the current generation of pupils to aim high in their future careers.

City of London School Governor, Sylvia Moys, has also received an MBE for services to the City of London Corporation and Education in Croydon. Following a career with Lloyd’s Register, Sylvia has been an elected Common Councilman for the Ward of Aldgate in the City since 2001. As the Ward appointee, she serves on the City’s Planning & Transportation Committee and also on the Culture, Heritage and Libraries Committee. In addition she is an elected Member of the Establishment, of the Epping Forest and Commons and of the IT, committees. As well as an elected Member of the CLS Board of Governors, she is a long-time elected Member and past Chairman of the Board of CLSG. Sylvia goes to great lengths to be present at our events and is, as a result, very highly regarded amongst pupils, parents and staff. We are very proud to have her on our Governing Board.

Rosamund Sweet, City of London Police PCSO, has been awarded an MBE for services to Policing and the Community in the City of London. Ros supports the School in many different ways and is a familiar face amongst staff and pupils in her role as liaison between the School and City of London Police. Our School is positioned in her area of responsibility, the Ward of Queenhithe, and we have all enjoyed the warmth and professionalism that she brings to CLS for the past eleven years. It is a privilege to work with her.

We would like to congratulate Bernard, Sylvia and Ros for their tremendous achievements.
