CLS Says goodbye to Former Acting Head

Wednesday, 16 May 2018

CLS is sad to announce that David Grossel, a former Director of Studies, Deputy Head and acting Headmaster (1998 - 99) has died, peacefully at home on 8 May 2018.

David will be remembered by many for his sharp wit, superb intellect and unaffected modesty. Many young teachers are fully aware we are better teachers for the advice and guidance we had from David and he was a loyal and thoughtful colleague.

Below is the Valete from The Citizen when David left CLS in 2000 to head south-west to KCS. Written by Lionel Knight and Aidan Tolhurst, it is a consummate summary of David and how we will all remember him. You can also click here for the Telegraph announcement.
