Pupils and staff are mourning the loss of Amanda Jorgensen, Stowe’s much loved and respected Head of Art and Faculty Chair who sadly died on Tuesday, 6 March 2018.
Amanda joined Stowe in 2012 and led the Art Department with great skill and vision, guiding Stoics to be creative and innovative in their exploration of the visual arts. Her warmth, patience, humour and understanding of her pupils has made the Art Department at Stowe a place where pupils are nurtured, feel secure and are inspired. Her legacy can be found in the extraordinary work produced by Amanda’s pupils at Stowe and Westminster where she taught for over 20 years.
Our sincere condolences go to her two extraordinary children, Amy (Nugent 17) and Ben (Grafton, Upper Sixth), and to her husband, Alex.
