Died: 18th May 2015
Notes: Mr Smith taught at Stockport Grammar School between 1950 and 1987.
The School was saddened to hear of the death of Mr Smith on 18th May 2015 at Stepping Hill Hospital following a short illness. He was 88.
Appointed by F H Philpott in 1950 to teach German, Alan spent his whole career from then on at Stockport, retiring in 1987. He and his head of department, Wolfgang Herman, formed a splendid complementary team for thirty years before he took over the departmental reins.
Both of Alan's sons, Richard Smith (OS 1971) and David Smith (OS 1973), attended Stockport Grammar School.
