Professor John Marks

We are sorry to announce the death of Professor John Marks, former pupil and Vice Chair of Governors, of the school: his name appears on the honours board in the K Hall. His three children attended the school. John had a distinguished academic career and was part of an educational think tank together with Baroness Cox that advised the last Conservative Government. He was awarded the OBE for his services to education. He left the governing body after many years service following a stroke 3 years ago which left him very disabled and relocated to Sheffield with his wife to be closer to one of their daughters. He was a loyal friend to the school over many years.
