The School Name
Henry Tyndale first became involved with the school in 1976. For the next twenty years until his death in 1996 he supported the school as an active committee member and treasurer of the parents, staff and friends association. He was a terrific and tireless fund-raiser. What is more important is that he was also a regular volunteer, happy to help in any way he could and particularly supportive of those children with the greatest difficulties or disabilities. He was a great friend to pupils, parents and staff alike.
In addition to his work supporting our school Henry had also been a great helper at two other special schools in the past and he continued to be actively involved with Mencap, the charity that assists children and adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. When the school was re-organised and re-developed in 1998 we were honoured to be able to re-name the school after Henry.
