It is with great sorrow that we need to announce that Mr Beard, our Headteacher, passed away on Friday 17 January 2020. This has come as a terrible shock to us all and the school and the GLF Schools Trust community are heartbroken to have lost such a gifted, kind and popular man who has had such a profound impact on the lives of the children and colleagues in all the schools in which he has worked. However, our grief is secondary to Mr Beard’s wife, children, siblings and extended family and to his close friends for whom this loss is immeasurable. We extend our sincere condolences to them and they will remain uppermost in our minds in the forthcoming days and weeks.
We have been privileged to know and work with Mr Beard. In due course we will find ways, in the short and long term, to celebrate his life and to mark his wonderful contribution to our community. If you have any ideas of how we can best achieve this please contact the school office.
Information for parents:
The Year 8 parents’ evening due to be held on Thursday 23 January 2020 will be postponed and will be rescheduled for later this term.
