4 February

It is with great sadness that we must let you know that Gary Peile the CEO of our Trust passed away on Saturday 2 February.

Gary died peacefully in the Royal London Hospital after a long and brave battle against the effects and complications of fighting thyroid cancer for over 4 years.

 

Whilst we are shocked at losing Gary we can all be reassured that he had received great pleasure and professional challenge in being a founder member of Active Learning Trust. He achieved his long held ambition to be the CEO of a successful multi-academy trust, he loved his work and visiting our schools, and all of us who worked with him and knew him will carry those positive memories in our hearts.

 

Information about funeral and other arrangements for celebrating Gary’s life will follow as soon as they are available.
