All who knew him will be sad to hear that the former Headteacher of Eastwood Community School, Bill Bairstow died on 30 January after a short illness.
Bill was a fine teacher and leader, well-liked and highly respected both in the school and the wider community. He set the school on a learning journey that continues to inform its progress. He acted as a mentor to many colleagues in the District and beyond.
His experience will be greatly missed. The school would wish to express its deepest condolences to his family.
