A Tribute to Geoff Strong (Former Governor and Vice President of the School)

Posted: 26/04/2023

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Geoff Strong on 24th April 2023. A kind, generous and deeply empathetic man, few have served Bromsgrove with the quiet passion and wisdom that were hallmarks of Geoff's service to the School.

Geoff and Sue Strong had strong links with Bromsgrove School from the early 1980s when their children Sally (TC '89) and Tim (School '89) joined the Prep School. In Geoff's time he was Chair of the Prep and Senior School Parents' Associations. He then was appointed to the Governing Body as one of the original Governors before the School was incorporated in 2003. He served the School loyally for a remarkable 25 years on various sub-committees before being appointed as Vice-Chair of the Board and then as a Vice-President following his retirement.

During his time at the School, Geoff was also the Governor for our Support Staff, frequently meeting with them and acting on their behalf. Geoff was a regular visitor to the School and supporter of all School events and concerts, from our Pre-Preps at Bromsgrove and Winterfold through to the Senior School. His smile and good-humoured support had become a fixture of Bromsgrove life.

The Executive team know that they echo the sentiments of all in the School family, past and present, in expressing their deep sadness at the loss of a great and selfless servant to the School, who supported our every endeavour with wisdom, passion and endearing humility.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Sue, his two children, Sally and Tim and all their family and friends at this very sad time.


Bromsgrove School is a co-educational, independent school.
