In Memoriam: Mr Alan Cormack Former Chair of Governors

4th May 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have been informed of some very sad news today which I would like to share with our wider school community. Our former Chair of Governors Mr Alan Cormack sadly passed away yesterday after a short illness. Alan was a Governor at St Wilfrids’ from September 2012 and became Chair in 2019 stepping down at Christmas 2020. He was instrumental in the foundation of Northern Saints Catholic Education Trust which has since become Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust. Alan was a fantastic asset and advocate for St Wilfrid’s and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We pray for the repose of Alan’s soul and for the comfort of his family who will be mourning their loss of a much loved husband, father and grandfather.


Eternal rest grant unto him O lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen
