John Granger has announced that he will retire as Head of Bournemouth School in August 2009. This extended period of notice will give the governors the opportunity to seek his replacement in a measured manner. The Old Bournemouthians Association would like to record their grateful thanks for the support that John has shown the Association during his tenure at East Way.
Former Headmaster Eric Bennett (1957 – 1970) sadly passed away on October 8th 2005, aged 94. He was the third headmaster in the history of the school and oversaw many changes as education developed during the 1960’s, in particular with the rapid expansion in the number of pupils progressing to university. He leaves a widow Ria and sons Anthony and Stephen to whom we send our sincere sympathy.
