Vale, Miss Simmons

9 October 2015

We were saddened by the recent death of former Headmistress, Dr Kathleen Simmons. Dr Simmons gave twenty-six years’ service to Glennie, sixteen as Headmistress, from 1966 until 1981. During that time, Science laboratories and the Library were built. She especially loved the Chapel. Miss Simmons (as she then was) lived amongst the boarders, upstairs in the Main building. She was greatly respected by all members of the community for her firm discipline and kind heart. Dr Simmons continued to support Glennie: the last event she attended was the naming of the Mike Norris building in 2013. We will remember her.  

Mrs Wendy Ashley-Cooper
Head of School
