We are very sorry to announce the passing of the following and offer our sincere condolences to family and friends.


19-year-old James, Jorge, Jose De Sousa Stayton has tragically died.

​He was studying in London, at Queen Mary University, where he was reading history. James had a deep passion for the subject and revelled in sharing his knowledge with others.  With his wicked sense of humour and mischievous smile he could bring irrepressible joy to anyone in his company. 


Iain M Alexander

(1956 – 1963)

Iain has died, after a short illness, at the age of 72.  A boarder in New House, Iain played rugby and cricket for the school. He took a degree at the London School of Economics and was a merchant banker in the City and in Australia before becoming chairman of an oil exploration company.

​In retirement, Iain, of Great Bookham, Surrey, was known as a bon viveur with eclectic tastes in literature and music. He was a fine golfer and played at St George’s Hill, Weybridge, until shortly before his death.

​Our thanks to Roger Watkins OM 1955 – 1962
