The College are sad to announce the death of former Principal Simon Dennis. Mr Dennis was Principal from 2008 – 2013 and will be fondly remembered by all present and former staff, parents and students. Mr Dennis was a powerful advocate for the international dimension of the Hockerill community, and worked tirelessly to develop a curriculum and facilities which would make this vision a reality. He was an influential spokesman for the College within the State Boarding School Association and within the International Baccalaureate Organisation. His student-centred approach and compassionate leadership of the College touched many lives, and the College has received many tributes to his time at Hockerill which attest to this.
The College sends Mr Dennis’ family our heartfelt condolences and thanks for his reflective, kind and ambitious leadership of Hockerill.
Formal commemoration of his life and period at Hockerill are currently being organised and the College will keep the community updated on the progress of these events.
Any messages of condolence that are sent via the College will be forwarded to his family.
