In Loving Memory of
It is with great sadness that we share the news that, after a short illness, our former headteacher, Paul Ryan passed away this week.
Paul was headteacher at The Winns for 15 years, from 2005 until his retirement in 2020. He was a great headteacher and under his leadership he raised the profile of our school, both in terms of performance and positive community ethos. He was well liked by the children, staff, parents and the wider Waltham Forest community. Many of our families, especially those with older children, will have fond memories of Paul throughout their time at the school and many found him to be a gentleman; always kind, thoughtful and warm. During his time at The Winns, Paul worked tirelessly to make sure that every child received the very best education, care and support to help them develop into kind, caring individuals.
We all thank you Paul for having such a huge impact on the lives of all the children who attended The Winns. You will be sadly missed.
Our thoughts and most heart-felt condolences go to Kim, his wife and their twin boys.
