We have received very sad news that one of our former teachers, Harold ‘Danny’ Drinkwater, has recently peacefully passed away at his family home. Former staff and students may recall that Mr Drinkwater was appointed as Head of Art at Sir William Romney’s School in 1961 and taught at our school for 25 years when he retired in 1985. Mr Drinkwater was a passionate supporter of the arts both in school and across the local community.
Friends, former pupils and colleagues are welcome to join Mr Drinkwater’s family at a reception at The Snooty Fox, Tetbury and 2pm on 15th May. We have been asked to inform those attending that black should not be worn and family flowers only.
On behalf of the entire Sir William Romney’s community, we would like to pass our condolences onto Mr Drinkwater’s family and friends and thank him for his inspiration and commitment to art, our students and our local community.
