Tributes have been paid to Robin Moggridge, former headteacher of Felpham Community College.
Mr Moggridge was headteacher at Felpham from 1987 to 2003 when he retired.
The letter, written by current headteacher Mr Anstiss, said: “With fierce intelligence and commitment, Robin led the school through a period of significant change in British education from the end of the 1980s.”
It added ‘we send our condolences to his wife, Jane and children, Cate and Richard’.
