It is with great sadness that we report former Blue Coat woodwork teacher Mr Harry Marsden died on Friday 16th December, aged 87.
Harry joined the School in 1968 and during his 23 year Blue Coat career he became a well known and popular figure. Outside of the classroom Harry ran the School Archery Club and could regularly be found carrying out a spot of DIY.
Only two weeks ago we raised a glass to Harry as he celebrated his 87th birthday during our Old Blues’ festive drinks reception.
Our thoughts are with Harry’s friends and family and we thank him for his commitment to the School and our students over so many years.
