In loving memory of Peter Alliss

1931 - 2020

St. Edmund's lost a great friend with the passing of Peter Alliss in December. Upon hearing the sad news, the Headmaster commented, "I am sure that, like me, you were saddened to hear of the passing of the great Peter Alliss, husband of Jackie our Chair of Governors. Peter was a great supporter of St. Edmund’s as a father and grandfather of St Edmund’s pupils as well as hosting many Pro-Celebrity golf days for us. One of my favourite memories is playing golf with him on the school course some twenty years ago. He had a beautiful swing and, of course, always had the right words and tone for the occasion. I later described it as playing golf with the television on in the background – his silences were priceless. It was only at the beginning of term that he joined me in the golf buggy to go around the grounds planning the new holes for the golf course. We shall miss him enormously – our thoughts and prayers are with Jackie and the family."
