News has been received this evening that Mrs Eileen Tomkinson sadly passed away last week.
Mrs Tomkinson started teaching at our school in 1964, and went on to become Head of the Junior School in 1980. When Miss Clark retired in 1986, Mrs Tomkinson took over as Principal. At the end of the Christmas term in 1991, Mrs Tomkinson herself retired from this role.
No funeral details are available yet, but it will be after Christmas.
Our thoughts are with Mrs Tomkinson’s daughter Helen, family and friends during this sad time.
