It is with great sadness I inform you that an ex member of staff Shirley Curran has sadly passed away at 57.  This was very sudden and has left the staff in shock and extremely upset.


Shirley worked at Beacon/Hope High for 19 years and was still in very close contact with many staff. Shirley was bubbly, full of fun and was a massive part of the school and ethos.  The pupils enjoyed intervention with Shirley because of her nurturing approach. She supported lots of families working alongside lots of agencies.


Shirley will be sadly missed by us all. Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.  We as a school will be purchasing a bench in her memory to go into the new sensory garden in September and making a donation to the ‘British Heart Foundation’.
