Vikki Askew

It's sad that we lost Vikki Askew in March 2016. As the school faces adverse publicity it is worth remembering that it had staff of impeccable morality who worked themselves into the ground and eventually into the grave for their pupils. Anyone who went to Romania with Muir John Potter and Vikki will have had a life changing experience. Anyone who was taught History by her will have had a special experience. I'm sure she deserved an MBE had she been male or died later. RIP Vikki.

I give you a few links to peruse.

Bizarrely, when registering the death, I met Webmaster Julian Taylor's mum who was there as a counsellor.
