A Service of Thanksgiving for the Life of John Davison

Having dealt with the disappointment of the late cancellation of John Davison’s Memorial, back in March 2020, just before covid took control of the world, we were delighted to finally be able to hold this significant event, on Saturday 2nd April 2022.

Over 200 people filed into the chapel, the congregation made up of former pupils, former and current colleagues from the School, family and friends and a 20 strong choir made up of former pupils and staff, all there to honour JAD, who taught at the School between 1960 – 1997.

The service was beautifully led by Rev Jane Markby with moving tributes from former Headmaster Jonty Driver (Honorary), Chris Hayward (Honorary) and Robert Courts (1997), capturing the true spirit and essence of JAD. Readings were delivered by Peter Williamson, Larry Eaton and current Principal, Richard Backhouse.

Full details of the tributes and order of service can be viewed by clicking on the titles below:
