It is with regret we wish to inform you that John Woodroofe, a long serving Governor and Trustee, has sadly passed away.
John was involved in Wade Deacon through his whole life, having attend as a pupil himself, then through the PTA, and as a Governor and Trustee - a link that has spanned several decades.
John served as Chair of Governors of Wade Deacon for many years, overseeing the success of the school to its first Ofsted Outstanding judgment, being an integral part of securing the new school building with fantastic modern facilities that today’s pupils benefit from, and was a major influence in the development of the Multi Academy Trust.
John was passionate about Wade Deacon throughout his whole life and sought to ensure that all pupils had the best possible opportunities regardless of their background.
John will be sadly missed by us all at the Wade Deacon family.
