Memorial Service for Roy Cook (KS 1959-1991, Second Master and History Teacher)

Roy's family wish to share that Roy died peacefully on the 11th of June 2021 after a long illness. There will be a memorial service at Kingswood Chapel on Roy's Tuesday 21st September at 2pm, followed by a memorial gathering at the Simon Morris Pavilion on the Upper Playing Fields. 

All who knew Roy are welcome to attend the service and the gathering. This is a thanksgiving service- we would be grateful if you avoid wearing black.  We would prefer everyone to wear a mask if possible. 

Parking at the school is difficult. If you are unable to park at or around the school, there will a minibus available to transfer people from the Upper to the service and then back to the 'reception' at the Upper.

Any queries please contact Kate at If anyone wishes to share any memories of Roy, whether you plan to attend the service or not, you're invited to use the same email to do so.
