Liz Cooke

1960 - 2021

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the death of our friend and colleague Elizabeth Cooke.  Liz, as she was known to all of us, passed away on Tuesday night following a courageous battle with illness which prevented her enjoying her well-deserved retirement as fully as she should but she was a fighter to the end. 

Liz was a valued member of our vocational team here at Three Towers, and with the Pupil Referral Service for many years before that, and she will be missed.  Many learners will remember her craft-based lessons; enterprise ideas and her boundless enthusiasm for everyone she worked with.  She loved young people, being their greatest advocate; seeing their endless potential and she always demonstrated how much she cared and valued them as individuals.

We have lost a dear friend, valued colleague and stalwart of our school.  We are providing support to members of the Three Towers community as they come to terms with her passing.

Our shock and grief at this time are little compared to what her family is feeling. She was immensely proud of her boys, their wives and more lately of her young grandchildren. Our hearts and prayers go out to them and her partner Manny.
