Sad News from the Bancroft’s Community

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Professor Peter Kopelman, Chair of Governors.

Peter had been undergoing treatment over the past year for a recurrence of leukaemia and he announced shortly before the end of term that he would be retiring from his position and from the Board of Governors. His death comes as a huge shock to all of us at Bancroft’s. Peter had been a magnificent and devoted supporter of the school for many years, first as a parent, and latterly as a Governor and Chair of the Board. Having had his wise counsel and great medical expertise during the current crisis has been an invaluable asset to the school.

Our thoughts are for his wife, Sue, and with his family.

We will greatly miss his exceptional educational vision and experience, his extraordinary sense of duty, and his kindness.

Simon Marshall, Head
