Dr Rex Pogson, OH Staff 1974-80

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Rex Pogson, former Head of History at Hymers College from 1974 until 1980. He came to Hymers from The Perse School, Cambridge and left to become Deputy Head at St. Olave's Grammar School, Orpington.

During his time at Hymers College, he was involved in the Historical Society, Political Society, as well as having an involvement in music, drama, and sport.

He went on to become a much-loved Headmaster at Lawrence Sheriff School in Rugby, from 1985-98.
