Chris Tongue

The School is sad to announce the death of Chris Tongue, who passed away in his sleep on Monday 22 September. Chris was Headmaster of the School between 1993 and 2004. Our thoughts are with his widow Chelsia and her family.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held in the School’s Chapel on 4 November at 2.30pm. Those who wish to attend the service should email the Headmaster’s PA, Miss Lisa Marriott, at The family has asked that any donations be made online at As Chris was a member of many clubs, societies and schools his family have suggested that attendees might celebrate his life with them by wearing club or school colours whether it be blazers, hats or ties.
