In Memoriam - Mr David J. Williams

5 March 2021 | Tagged: Senior School, Junior School, School Community

Former colleagues, pupils and parents will be very sorry to hear that David Williams passed away at home in Sheffield on 11th February 2021 from natural causes.

David was a highly experienced and committed member of the English Department from 1978 until 1992, and he will be remembered particularly for his valuable service as Clyde Housemaster, Scripture Union leader and school magazine editor, and for the many memorable school drama productions for which he shared the role of director with his Head of Department, Bill Seaman. His younger son, Jeremy was School Captain in 1982-1983.

David remained a very loyal and interested supporter of the High School from retirement in Sheffield, travelling north by train on occasion for major school events until relatively recently.

His funeral took place in Sheffield on Wednesday 3rd March.

We offer our sincere condolences to his widow, Bridget and his children Elizabeth, Paul and Jeremy and their families.
