Geoff H. Wright
OW 1954 - 1960

We are very sad indeed to bring you the news that Geoff Wright, OW and Chairman of Whitgift’s School Governors, died suddenly in late October. Geoff left Whitgift in 1960, and in the course of a long and distinguished career in property, latterly working as a Director for Hammerson, he led building projects all over the world. He was – as many of you will know – an incredibly dedicated servant of Whitgift and the Whitgift Foundation, as Court and School Governor, and latterly Chairman. It is incredibly sad that he passed away just a few months before retiring as Chairman, as we were fully intending to celebrate his leadership of the Governors handsomely.
