Remembering Mr Jack
Staff, students and governors at Claydon High School were saddened to hear of the news of Matt Jack’s death in a cycling accident on Good Friday.
Our thoughts are with Matt’s wife, children and family at this very difficult time. He will be sorely missed by everyone at the school and our huge sense of loss is shared by ex-students and the wider community.
Matt Jack was an outstanding PE teacher and a very popular figure at the school where he had worked for 19 years. He was a modest man, who inspired confidence in those he taught through his excellent subject knowledge and his caring personality which was dedicated to supporting each and every young person he taught to aim high and succeed in all aspects of their lives.
A book of condolence will be opened at the school and if any past students would like to contribute to this, they should contact the school reception.
