Mr Vincent - May 2020

It is with great sadness I share the news that Mr Jim Vincent, a previous and much loved Head Teacher at The Whartons, passed away on Sunday. 

Mr Vincent was Headteacher for 23 years from 1987 to 2010, and shaped the school and its ethos in many ways. He took The Whartons on its journey from a middle school through to a thriving  primary school. 

Many of our families and staff will remember Mr Vincent and his wider contributions to the community in Otley. 

Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family at this sad time. 

Mrs Julia Dickson

Head Teacher
