A SALISBURY head teacher has been remembered for the "huge contribution" he made to education.

Stuart Morgan-Nash, who joined Leehurst Swan School in August, died this week after a short illness.

He had previously been headmaster at St Edward’s Prep School in Reading and deputy head teacher at Warminster School.

A statement from Leehurst Swan School said: "Stuart’s caring, passionate and vibrant approach made a huge contribution to education and was felt by all pupils fortunate enough to have encountered him; his legacy will live on.

"Whilst Stuart was only with Leehurst Swan School for a short time, he was a dynamic and inspirational leader who made a huge impact. He was dearly loved and will be terribly missed by pupils, parents, staff and governors.

"Our prayers and thoughts at this sad time go out to his family."

His family said: "Stuart was a much beloved husband to Nikki and father to India, Ella and Austin​. They all treasure the time he spent with them and are missing him more than words can say.

"Nikki and the whole family would like to extend their thanks to family, friends, neighbours and colleagues for their unwavering support and continued love we could not manage without it."
