I am very sad to inform you that the Ipswich High School Chair of Governors Dr Simon Letman passed away suddenly on Saturday 13th April 2019.

This is a huge shock for us at Ipswich High and for the staff and students at neighbouring Holbrook Academy, where he has been such a transformative and well-loved Headteacher. Dr Letman has been a wonderful addition to our Governing Body and, more recently as the Chair and we will miss the enthusiasm, experience and warmth which he brought to the role and the school.

We are sending thoughts and love to Dr Letman’s wife Sally and his family at this devastating time. Please feel free to send any messages of condolence to me at Head@ipswichhighschool.co.uk and I will pass these on for the book of condolence at Holbrook Academy.

Best wishes,
Oona Carlin
Head
