It is with the deepest regret that the School acknowledges the passing of its longest-serving, much loved and highly respected former Headmaster, John Mercer, who died on Sunday evening after a brief illness.
John joined the School in 1968 as Principal Teacher of English and became Headmaster at a young age in 1972, commencing a period of over 26 years' dedicated service in that role. He led many crucial developments in that time and was undoubtedly the pivotal figure in establishing the firm foundations upon which the School continues to build to this day. An outstanding leader and a wonderful man, he was unquestionably the most significant figure in the 86 year history of the School.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to John's family.
