It is with sadness we have received the news that John Lawrenson passed away this morning.

John was our longest serving Rektor, in the period from 2002 to 2012. Together with his wife Nicky, he returned to the UK on retirement, where they have been living in the town of Stone.

John came to our College with vast experience in all parts of the UWC Education after many years of dedication at Atlantic College, in the last period as Deputy Rektor.

We got to know John as a warm educator, colleague and leader. He was passionate in his quest for the many forms of knowledge, which he readily shared.

John was reduced by illness during his last years. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go to Nicky.

A tribute here from Keith Clarke.
