Celebrating the life of one of our own - Alex Newlove 17th March 1992 to 7th January 2020.

14 January 2020


It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you of the death of one of our ex-students Alex Newlove. Alex was an exemplary student who knew how to utilise his talents to the max, and at the same time maintain strong friendships with a large and loyal band of mates. He was a rising star in his chosen career of accountancy, working for Grant Thornton leading on due diligence in Chicago. Alex had also been working in his spare time in a homeless shelter and this has only come to light since his death, speaking volumes about his outstanding level of human decency and modesty which most of us can only aspire to.

Alex's funeral is at 4.30pm on Monday 20th January at Charnock Richard Crematorium and Alex's mum Judy has invited everyone to go back to Croston Sports Club after the service to celebrate Alex's life. 

We would ask that you remember Alex, his family and friends in your prayers.

God Bless Alex, you are going to be sorely missed.
