Members & Directors

Gerry Batty RIP

We are immensely saddened to learn of the death of Gerry Batty, one of our Trust’s Directors.

Gerry was passionate about education, and improving the life chances of all children, particularly the disadvantaged. He spent his career in local education, becoming Deputy Head at Notre Dame High School, and then Headteacher at Hellesdon High School and at Acle High School, before becoming CEO of the Wensum Trust. Latterly he was a well-respected Ofsted Inspector. He was graced with good humour and passion, and will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen.
