We are deeply saddened to report the death this week in Maidstone Hospital of Keith Smith, Head of History and Politics, after a brave battle with cancer. He had been Head of History and Politics for many years, and a greatly loved colleague at Whitgift since the 1980s.

Current and former Whitgiftians will have known him for his leadership of the CCF, Fencing, his Housemastership and his wonderful teaching and mentoring.

Keith’s funeral will be a private family occasion, but in due course there will be a memorial event to enable his many friends,colleagues, former colleagues and former pupils celebrate and pay respects to his remarkable life and legacy.

We have opened a book of condolence to be shared with his family and welcome those who knew him to add your messages and memories to this: Keith Smith MBE Condolence Messages - Whitgift School
