I had the privilege of serving as Derek's deputy at Creswell. He was a fine headteacher and a fine man. I will never forget his kindness towards me and the valuable advice he freely gave to help advance my career. Thank you Derek. My deepest sympathies and very best wishes to his family and friends.
