Chris Figgis (2004-2022)
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 and everything in between, the memories we made will live on. I will forever miss the cricket talk during class and arguments with Mr Clark about whose football team is best whilst still managing to be the top of the class. Without my weekly question as to what physics work was due I wouldn’t be where I am now and for that I am forever grateful. My fondest memory is of playing round with diffraction gratings and ‘funky’ glasses worryingly close to a-level exams and laughing so hard tears were streaming down my face, when I come across those pictures to this day it still makes me chuckle.
Chris has always been there for all of us, and I know that as a year group we will never be the same again. I hope that Chris is looking down on us and we can all do him proud every day as we all work through our own griefs.
My most sincere thoughts are with all his family and everyone struggling in their own way, and I hope Chris will live on in all of our hearts and feels at peace now.
