We are sad to announce the death of long-serving member of the teaching staff, Joyce Heater (BCJS CR. 1980-96, CR. 1996-04, Archivist 2004-16)
Joyce Heater joined the Junior School Common Room in January 1980 and worked there for 16 years as a teacher, form-mistress, and Head of History. After retiring from the Junior School in 1996, Joyce would return in several roles, including as a part-time teacher at the Senior School. Throughout her time here Joyce contributed a great deal to the performing arts, including the staging of many musical productions at the Junior School, as well as developing staff welfare.
Joyce would later spend much of her retirement preserving the school’s archive, and sharing its history, as the School Archivist until 2016.
A full obituary will follow in due course.
A memorial service to Joyce is being arranged at the College for 7 September 2024, details to follow.
