It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Walmsley, Principal at UWC Atlantic College from January 2012 to December 2016. John died peacefully at home on Wednesday 7 June.

Our thoughts are with his wife Barbara, and children Josephine, Kate, James, Dominic, William and Cissy who have shown remarkable courage and resilience during the past few years. 

John will be remembered with great respect and admiration as a principled leader and individual, and as a thoughtful and supportive colleague.  A passionate and innovative educator, he was deeply committed to the College’s values-based education, and enthused and energised by the evolution of the UWC movement.  He will be sorely missed. 

A private family service will take place at Coychurch, Bridgend. A Memorial Service will then be held at Sidcot Quaker Meeting House in late July for friends and family.
