I remember him with affection and respect. He became Headmaster in my Sixth Form years and was also a great friend of my father Ben Hoyos. May he rest in great peace!

Dexter has erred here. Tank became Headmaster in 1965, two years after Hoyos left school.r
I always thought that he hid his greatness in a suit of humility…
I worked for Albert 1970-72 on contract as Spanish master, the era of Cpt Hutt, ‘Fanny’ Field, Lady Adams, Frank Corbin,Rev Ivor Jones, ‘Heads’ Marshall, and above all Jeff Wiltshire, with whom I kept up regular contact until his death. I was rather a square peg and I regret not having made a better contribution to HC life, though I worked with Janice Millington and Neil Hammond in ‘Oliver’ under Richard Day’s inspirational directorship.Ralph Jemmot started the same day as me! I liked Albert a lot despite our frequent shout-ups, and remember his desolation when his beloved dog Otto/Toto was killed. I hope some pupils at least remember me with a bit of affection. RIP Albert.
