King, Peter W
Peter W King died of cancer early 2007. After attending Reading University Peter was on the staff at St. Peter’s School, Seaford for a couple of years before coming to teach at the Junior School in September 1982.
He was Head of English, teaching some History and French as well. A competent soccer and cricket coach he ran the 1st XI Soccer for a number of seasons as well as assisting with Colts B and Under 9 XI Cricket. He was also responsible for the production of two school plays – The Machine Gunners in 1993 and Powder Monkeys in 1994.
He had the distinction of leaving Hurst twice – once at the end of 1989 when he took a job in Worthing only to return in September 1990 and finally in 1996 when he became Head of English at Durston House in Ealing. Very professional in all that he did, he was a valuable member of the Common Room.
