Ben Vidler

Everyone involved with the Giles Academy, students, staff and governors, are extremely sad at the passing of Ben Vidler just before Christmas. Ben joined the school in September 2012 as Assistant Headteacher and Science teacher and in his time at the school made a huge impression. He will be remembered by all as someone with a huge personality, an extremely positive outlook on life and an infectious sense of humour. He was passionate about his work and always wanted to do the very best for those around him. He also played a large part in the introduction of Giles Adventure, which has seen Year 8 and Year 9 students camping at Edale in the Peak District, and all Year 10 students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award from 2013 onwards.

Many students and ex-students have contacted the school following the announcement of his death to express their sadness about this news and to share their memories, one student saying; “Sir, you were always smiling, such an inspiration and a brilliant teacher. You will be dearly missed”.

Our thoughts at this time are with Ben’s wife, Tracey and his daughters, Sam, Penni and Tobey.
