Patrick Tobin

We are sad to report that Patrick Tobin, former Headmaster of Prior Park College, passed away on 29 April 2020, at his home in the Isle of Wight, surrounded by his family. 

Patrick came to the College as the first lay headmaster after the Christian Brothers’ departure in 1981. He transformed the College, introduced girls in 1983 and stayed until 1989. He remained in touch with the College and took an active interest in the progress of the school, maintaining friendships with staff and the headmasters that followed him. Our sympathies go to his wife, Margery and his children, Matthew (PPA 1991), Emma (PPA 1993), Lucy and Sophie. A memorial service will be held at the College, the date of which will be announced later in the year. Rest In Peace. Deo Duce Deo Luce.
