In Memoriam - Mr John Moore
Mr John Moore, who retired from CCHS in 2021, gave 32 years of exemplary service to the school community, teaching and inspiring hundreds of students.
Following a long and valiant battle with a serious illness, Mr Moore passed away peacefully on 7th August 2023. His example, to colleagues and students, will set the tone and standard for us this academic year at CCHS.
Mr Moore was an innovator in the teaching of A level Economics. He was the consummate reflective practitioner, assiduously reviewing his resources and strategies at the end of each academic year.
As a teacher, Mr Moore always worked hard for his students, setting high standards and providing great support to them.
As a colleague, his warmth and sparkling humour were constant gifts for staff.
The outpouring of memories and affection demonstrate Mr Moore’s significant legacy. He exemplified all that is true and good about CCHS. As part of our celebration of the great Mr Moore, and as a permanent recognition of his work and service at CCHS, our school library will now be known as, ‘The John Moore Library’.
