Ripley Court mourns the loss of James Porter

The whole Ripley Court community has been deeply saddened by the untimely loss of James Porter, history teacher from 1980 to 2013 and erstwhile Deputy Head, who passed away last Thursday, 31st July 2014, after a long battle with cancer. James was hugely popular with staff, pupils and parents and was an inspirational influence on generations of pupils.

A full obituary will be posted in the fullness of time. For now, our thoughts are with Jo and children Lily and Tom.

There will be a private cremation on Friday 15th August, followed by a memorial service at St Mary's Ripley at 2pm and then refreshments at the school from 3pm. All are welcome.

in lieu of flowers, the family have requested donations to Cancer Research. Please click here.
