The Revd Andrew Walters - reported by John Maxwell-Jones
Andrew was at Killerton 1969-1970 and moved to Broadclyst from 1970-1971 sharing with David Phillips (D.A.C. Phillips).The Revd Andrew Walters was Headmaster of the Lichfield Cathedral School from 1992 until he retired in 2002.John found this notice in the notices sheets at the Cathedral.
It was with sadness that the Cathedral and Cathedral School received news of the death on 17 February of Andrew Walters. His contribution to the life of this place, over many years, not least as Head of the School and Chancellor’s Vicar, was substantial and significant. He will be mourned by all who knew him, including many generations of old Choristers. It was Andrew’s wish for a private funeral to take place at S Michael’s, Tenbury Wells.
John M-J remembers Andrew playing football/rugby at Killerton in 70/71. He also met him regularly through the church choir at Broadclyst and they both had the same organ teacher, John Wood.
Andrew was 10 years older than most us, having taught in a prep school before coming to Luke's for the 2-year course. He went after a few years to be (as it turned out, the last) Headmaster and Warden at St. Michael's College, Tenbury, a specialist choir school.
After that he was Chaplain at Exeter School and then Headmaster of Homefield School, Sutton from 1987 before arriving in Lichfield in 1992 retiring in 2002 when he was 60. John believes that the attraction of Lichfield was that Andrew's father had been headmaster there when Andrew was a boy, indeed, Andrew was born at Lichfield Cathedral School.
