Robert (Bob) Broadhead (Former Staff)

29 Mar 2023
In memoriam

Robert (Bob) Broadhead, member of staff from 1979 to 1991 has died at the age of 88.

Excerpts from the Churcherian (91), written by Peter Collins, the then Head of Maths...

"Before coming to Churcher's, Bob taught Mathematics at Northampton Grammar School and then was very much involved in the discipline and counselling, as well as teaching Maths, in an emerging large Comprehensive school. Churcher's was a welcome return to the traditional system of an acedemic education that he had previously known at Northampton Grammar.

Bob ran the U13 and U14 rugby sides for a number of years before becoming interested in jogging. He then started the school cross country team and still regularly beats them home on a Wednesday afternoon! Bob has to date completed four London marathons and is a committee member of Liss Runners.

Bob has quite a talent for picking winners in horse racing. If you would like a tip for next year's Derby, he is the Petersfield punter to ask. The staff enjoy his annual sweepstake.

He and Jenny love walking and spend many a happy week roaming the Lake District. We wish him well in his retirement and hope that Jenny's business continues to thrive, at least enough to add the odd bottle of fine claret to Bob's already overstocked wine cellar. Cheers Bob, it's been nice knowing you. We will certainly miss your sense of humour."
