We’ve been notified that former teacher and old boy Peter Fallows died at his home in Dunham Massey on Christmas Eve after a long illness. Our thoughts are with his family.
We understand that the funeral is Friday 17th January 12.45 at Altrincham Crematorium and then on to the Stamford arms at 2 pm.
As a tribute, we publish the retirement note from the 1996 Newsletter;
Retirement of Peter Fallows
Pete first entered this school in 1955 as a bright-eyed eleven-year-old. He soon came under the influence of George Thornton and occasionally, to his cost, Keith Nodding. After leaving school he went into industry where he learnt his engineering skills, but eventually he decided to change his career and go into teaching.
In 1971 he returned to the school where he has taught his considerable skills to many generations of young men for the past twenty-five years. He is justly proud of his students’ excellent exam successes and Pete could always handle the most difficult pupils, who regularly come to visit him years after leaving.
A dynamic member of the staff football and cricket teams, Pete will be a great loss to the school. We wish him and Lynne many happy years of retirement.
