Lynne Peart

It is with much sadness that we announce the very sudden passing of former teacher, Lynne Peart, on 13 June in Scarborough Hospital, after a short illness.

Lynne’s funeral will be held at 1.00 p.m. at St Martin’s Church, Seamer on Friday 23 June and afterwards at The Londesborough in Seamer. All donations are to go to the RNLI. At the request of her daughters, Kate and Sarah, no black to be worn but wonderful, bright colours; the brighter the better!

Lynne was a much loved and respected teacher at Scarborough College from 1980-2007.  She initially joined as a part time teacher at Lisvane on Sandybed Lane and then moved into learning Support at Scarborough College.

She became a full-time teacher in the Senior School and was an outstanding Sixth Form tutor, a role she relished, in addition to her A Level teaching. She achieved excellent results and many former Scarborough College students have benefited from her pastoral and academic care.

She was involved in many English Department Stratford trips which became an established and much anticipated annual event for students of all ages, but particularly the Sixth Form in later years. There are many former students who will fondly remember, Nando’s, The Quilt and Croissant and Warwick Castle.

We send our heart-felt condolences to Lynne’s family and she will always be very warmly and fondly remembered by her students and work colleagues.
