Bush was born in Billingborough, South Lincs. After studying at the
University of Leeds, where he was awarded an honours degree in
languages and met his future wife Margaret, he spent his entire
teaching career at King James’s.
Beginning in 1961 as a junior Latin, French and English teacher under
such ‘giants’ as Jim Toomey, Dick Addy and Frank Anderson, he
progressively became housemaster of Jessop, Head of Latin and
eventually Deputy Headmaster.
Between Harry Taylor’s retirement and Alan Conley’s arrival, he was
Acting Headmaster; he describes the time spent sitting in Harry
Taylor’s chair as his most daunting but inspiring time at King
James’s. He retired in July 1996 and moved to South Wales.
