Sad News regarding Mr B Wright

Former Governor, Former Headteacher and Chair of Governors

‘Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted’ (Matthew 5:4)

It is with great regret that I must share some sad news.  Unfortunately, Mr Wright passed away in the late hours of Tuesday morning.  This comes as an unexpected shock to us all.  Although Mr Wright was ill recently and in hospital he had returned home and we were hopeful for a recovery.

Firstly, our thoughts, prayers and love go to Mr Wright’s family.   Please pray for them.  It is impossible to express the sense of loss and grief our school family will feel.  I know that many staff and Governors were close to Mr Wright.   This news will be equally distressing to staff/students/families, both past and present, whom Mr Wright taught and cared for.

Mr Wright was an outstanding Headteacher and Chair of Governors.  Mr Wright spent 33 years working in secondary education which included 20 years as Headteacher of two contrasting comprehensive schools and was Headteacher of St Edmund’s from 1988 to 2001. Subsequently Mr Wright worked part-time for 11 years as an educational consultant. This work involved various roles including Ofsted Inspector, external adviser to governing bodies, School Improvement Partner and Link Inspector with a local authority. Mr Wright had a wide experience of school improvement strategies, action planning, the understanding and use of school data and the identification of school strengths and weaknesses.

Between 2009-14 Mr Wright was privileged to serve as Chair of Governors at St Edmund's and for in more recent years as Vice-Chair. 

Peace I leave with you: My peace I give you.   I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.’   (John 14:27). 

Should you wish to contact the school to share your memories or have any questions please email the school on school@saintedmunds.org.uk

St Edmund's End of Year Whole School Mass on the 19th July was in memory of Mr Wright.  

Mr Wright will be sadly missed, but will always be part of our family here at St Edmund’s.
