Amanda Jørgensen (1968 – 2018)

Staff and past pupils of Westminster School are mourning the loss of Amanda Jørgensen, a much-loved colleague, teacher and friend.

Amanda’s career at Westminster spanned 18 years from 1994 to 2012, when she moved to Stowe School to become Head of Art. Amanda is remembered at Westminster for her creativity, sensitivity and understated strength, making her a considerate leader – she ran PSHE for 12 years and Netball – and a highly valued friend. Through her artistic sensibility she was able to engage deeply with her students’ work. An extraordinary print-maker, she taught by example and by giving her pupils the confidence to experiment. Her own works were noted for their incredible delicacy and stillness. Our thoughts are with Amanda’s husband and children.

Amanda’s daughter Amy has set up a page in her memory:
