Chris Figgis (2004-2022)

It is with the greatest of sadness that we have heard the tragic news that Chris Figgis has died. Chris was a talented and hugely liked member of the Kent College community. He started here in Year 5 and left the school in the summer of 2022. He enjoyed everything the school had to offer, from being a part of the choristers when he started and, of course, excelling on the hockey pitch both at school and at Polo Farm. He spent his final year as Deputy Head Boy, serving the community which he had been a significant part of for so long. He touched the lives of so many colleagues and his fellow pupils. We will all miss him greatly. Please use this book to share your messages and memories of Chris.

Our deepest sympathies are with Chris’s family and friends.  Our department came to know Chris through his role as Deputy Head Boy. Some of his responsibilities included taking part in films and photoshoots, giving tours of the school to prospective families and prefect duties at events, which the Admissions and Marketing team coordinate. Chris …

Figgy was just one of those people who always managed to make me laugh especially in situations where we probably shouldn’t be laughing. He managed to get away with things that nobody else could, just because he was Figgy. I will always remember him for his stupid flamingo tie that he never took off …

My lasting memory of Chris will always be his warmth, kindness and wonderful sense of humour. I am not sure he particularly enjoyed English GCSE, but he still excelled in it, showing dedication in all his work and attending lessons with a good-natured attitude and a mature work ethic. He worked with his pals: …

Chris and I would always be the first people in the common room and often he started the morning by locking me out. He’d then win at table football and pool and would never fail to remind me that I had probably lost my hockey match by at least 7-0 at the weekend. He …

 As a very pleasant and likeable character, I had the great pleasure of teaching Chris A Level Physics. Academically he excelled, being a bright student with an open mind, he would successfully take on problem solving activities. Chris made the lessons an enjoyable and fun experience, being always willing to get involved. There was …

Bro I met you since i was year 10, lots of memories over these four years. You are so talkative and friendly, when I first came to UK I was so shy I can’t even speak to any native. However you still approach me and talk with me, i am so glad to meet …

The world has lost such a wonderful person. Having met aged ten and grown up together, it is a great loss that we can no longer watch each other thrive. From being in the same form and basically every maths and English class since yr7 to the most recent, our chaotic a-level physics classes …

Having been to school with Chris from junior school until I left in year 9, I remember having pretty much every Maths and English class with him. I remember days when we’d do cross country together in junior school and later tussle on the hockey pitch in a girls vs boys match (though he …

My abiding memory of Chris will be his engaging smile and sense of fun. He contributed much to the Music at the Junior School, both as a Chorister (performing in two national competitions and on tour in Austria) and playing Percussion & Euphonium in the Orchestra. I was so very sorry to hear of …

It is very difficult to express the sadness that I felt when I heard the news about Chris who started his time in KC as a young Marlowe student in my Yr7 BAH tutor group. ”Vale la pena” (it is worth it) was one of Chris’ signature sentences in Spanish, and with this saying …
