On Wednesday 9th December a memorial plaque dedicated to The Late Venerable Bob Metcalfe was unveiled in the School Chapel. The service was attended by Bob’s wife, children and grandchildren and by members of the School community including the Headteacher, Head Boy and Girl and Chair of Governors Julia Shaw.
As chaplain of the School for over twenty years Bob made his mark most effectively as he possessed a great pastoral heart for staff and students. Even after leaving the chaplaincy role Bob still came back to assist as an invigilator in the entrance examinations and to attend School functions and was also a Guardian of the Blue Coat School Foundation.
Bob’s Christian witness was clear for all to see in his love of people and friendliness to one and all.
We thank Bob for his significant contribution to the School community over many years and our thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.
