DAVE BUSH (1961-96)
Dave 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.
