News has only just reached us that Mark Freeman died suddenly of a heart attack on March 14th 2005, at the age of just 42.
Mark was at Kingham Hill School right up until completing his A-levels (upper 6th form) in academic year 1979-1980, by which time he was deputy Head Boy, a Colour Sergeant in the CCF, Head of Bradford House and captain of the second XV rugby team.

Former Kingham student John Targett ( P & D 62 – 67 ) has appeared in a number of newspaper, radio and TV interviews during January. Channel 5 and the BBC have broadcast items on John and his selfless act in donating 20% of his liver to his grandson Owen, thus saving his life.
