In December 1954, Dr White retired.

Dr White wrote a piece in the 1955 magazine saying she was gladdened by the confidence that the school was in the hands of its new Headmistress Miss Jewsbury. 

As a retirement present Dr White presented the school with the wonderful Magnolia tree which still stands at the front of the school.
