Gordon’s daughter Amanda informed the school that he had died on 9 March 2012.

She told us that after MCS Gordon went to Radley College, then he joined an Oxford firm of Chartered Accountants where he qualified and learnt his profession. After a few years he set up his own very successful practice in London, specialising in the advertising industry. After many years in ‘town’ he retired to the Oxfordshire countryside.

He was an incredibly generous, gentle and hard working man who leaves behind his daughter and grand daughter, Emily aged 5.
