John Poustie

The school is very sad to report that our former teacher Mr John Poustie passed away at home on 29 December 2017, at the age of 69. He retired from the staff in December 2013, after 21 years of excellent service in many roles, included teaching History and Games, as a CCF officer and as the Head of Collins House.

He was a much loved and dedicated schoolmaster, whose eternal positivity and optimism shone through. John’s kindness and consideration for those in his care were exemplary. In his impressive career as a sports coach, he touched many lives, enabling countless rugby, hockey, cricket and squash players to excel.

The school will hold a Celebration of John’s life, led by our Chaplain, Reverend Tom Carson, in the Main Hall on Saturday 10 March 2018 at 2pm. The celebration will be followed by tea. All are welcome. Please confirm your attendance, for seating and catering purposes, by Friday 2 March to the Headmaster’s PA, Mrs Kim Leach, on headmaster@exeterschool.org.uk .
