Hansford, H James
James Hansford apparently died some while ago but news of his death only reached Hurst in 2004.
A graduate of the University of Kent, James taught English in the Junior School between January 1973 and March 1975 before going on to do post-graduate work at Exeter University.
Having obtained his PhD he later became Head of English at Royal Grammar School, Guildford. James was an interesting and stimulating colleague who played a full part in school life not only in the classroom but also on the games field. He was frequently involved in Junior School dramatic productions and ran the film group.
