Basil Nickerson R.I.P

16th November 1931 – 12th April 2022

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Basil Nickerson (Staff 1956-1994, OP 1994) died peacefully this morning, aged 90.

May he Rest in Peace

To his wife Clare and daughter Elizabeth, and to Suzanne, Simon, Damian and Mark we offer our deepest sympathy.

Basil joined the senior school staff in 1956 to teach classics and retired in 1994. From 1969 to his retirement he was Second Master.
During his teaching career he was Head of Classics; 1st XI and 2nd XV Coach; CCF Contingent Commander and Examinations Officer.

Many thousands of Old Priorians through the generations will be aware of his great contributions in so many ways to the life of the School. After his retirement in 1994 he, with his wife Clare, became two of the greatest supporters of so many of the OPA’s and the School’s activities – giving so generously with integrity, of his talents in so many ways.
