It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Jean Bowman. Jean attended Wellfield A.J Dawson School as a pupil from 1957 – 1964. She then went to university and qualified as a teacher. She began her career at Wellfield AJ Dawson in 1968/69 as a teacher of history and became Head of History in 1972. Jean retired from Wellfield Comprehensive in 2005.
Jean was a very popular and well respected teacher. She returned to Wellfield last year for a visit and I was delighted to show her around the building and listen to all her memories. Jean had a great sense of humour and it was an absolute pleasure to meet her. We send our condolences to her family.
