On leaving Wednesbury, W G Thomas became Headmaster of St Peter’s School, Huntingdon, Cambs, where he remained for the rest of his teaching career. He retired in c1989. He became a non-stipendiary priest of the Church of England and ministered to a congregation in Foxton, a village south of Cambridge.
“A cheque from the staff and pupils at Wood Green High School was presented to the deputy headmaster, Mr George Thomas, on his last day at the school. Mr Thomas is leaving to take up the post of head master at a Huntingdon school. He was born at Wolverhampton and educated at Dudley Grammar School and the University of Birmingham. In 1967 he was appointed deputy headmaster of the former Wednesbury Boys’ High School, which later became an enlarged bilateral school and last year was linked to the town’s comprehensive system. Mr Thomas, who is 40, will be succeeded by Mr G B Sharpe, who at present teaches at Stoke-on-Trent.”
(Mr Sharpe does not appear elsewhere on this site, as he was never at WBHS-proper.)
