Obituary of Former Headmaster – Rev Clifford Hughes MA, Cert Ed

Beaconhurst is extremely sad to announce the sudden death of former Headmaster Reverend Clifford Hughes at his home in Kinross on Christmas Day.

Rev Hughes was Headmaster of Hurst Grange and first Headmaster of Beaconhurst Grange School when Hurst Grange amalgamated with the Beacon School for girls from 1976-1981.  Once described as Scotland’s foremost lyrical tenor he often adorned our tv screens and was given his own show by STV, At Your Request, and was known in school for his rousing musical recitals.

Beaconhurst School sends its heartfelt condolences to his wife Kathleen, his children and grandchildren.
