 Sad News


We are very saddened to hear about the death of our lovely governor and loyal friend, Albert Young, who died peacefully on New Year’s Eve at the grand old age of 97!  
For over 22 years he had volunteered at Devonshire, during which time he had made a lasting impression on so many members of our school community – staff, governors, children and parents.
We have so many amazing memories of this true gentleman. He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all of us.
