STAFF and students at Ridgewood High School in Wollaston have been left in shock following the sudden death of a “much-loved” teacher.

Art teacher Trevor Wainwright passed away yesterday (Thursday) after a short battle with cancer.

The popular mentor, who had taught at the Park Road West school for 37 years, had been off work for a few months but the news of his sudden death has left colleagues and pupils devastated.

Ridgewood headteacher Clive Nutting said: “He was such a dedicated, much-loved and inspirational teacher who will be sadly missed by not just those at school now but those that have worked with him over many years.

“Our thoughts are with his family at what is a very sad time.”

Mr Wainwright, who lived in Wolverhampton, leaves a wife and two children.
