He was appointed as the first Headmaster of the newly founded Trinity School, Teignmouth in 1979, and typically of the man, happily continued to help teach French and coach rugby for long after stopping as Head.

Terry joined Vincent’s in 1953, studied at Worcester College and graduated with a modern languages degree in French. A real legend in rugby circles, a calm, kind and friendly person with a great sense of humour.
