Mr Keith Entwistle

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that Mr Keith Entwistle, our long serving member of staff, a design technology technician and a school governor passed away on Sunday 22nd July aged 63.


 Mr Entwistle had a cardiac arrest on Wednesday on a school trip to Blackpool and was immediately taken to the cardiac unit at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. Sadly his life support machine was turned off on Sunday.

 Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and former employee, Mrs Denise Entwistle and the rest of family at this sad time. There are no funeral arrangements as yet. The family have asked that people who wish to send their condolences do so by sending cards to Mrs Entwistle and family, C/O St James’s CE High School, Lucas Rd, Bolton, BL49RU.

We will all miss Mr Entwistle in many different ways; as a friend to both staff and pupils, a colleague, a governor and a member of the PTA, supporting all our school events and always looking after everyone. He also worked tirelessly for the Scouts, Bolton Wanderers FC, Manchester United and his church, St John’s. Our school will recognise his services to St James’s when we return to school in September.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the Entwistle family, staff, governors and pupils at St James’s as we come to terms with the loss of a lovely, kind and caring man - Keith Entwistle.

May he rest in peace with God’s blessing.
