We are sad to report that former member of staff Gordon Braddy passed away on 27th June after a lengthy illness.
After joining Uppingham as a young man in 1956, Gordon became an inspirational English teacher as well as Housemaster of Constables from 1964 until 1979 when he left the School. He remained in Uppingham in his latter years and saw a regular stream of his former pupils who were always delighted to spend time with him.
A funeral service will be held at Edgar Newman Chapel, Kettering Crematorium (Rothwell Road, Kettering, NN16 8XE) on Thursday 18th July at 3.00pm.
If you wish to attend the service, please contact Richard Boston at firstname.lastname@example.org, by 12th July, so that we can confirm numbers to the organisers.
Any recollections of Gordon that you would like to share for the School archives and in the OU Magazine woudl be gratefully received, please email Jo Franklin by 15th August. Thank you.
