“GET well soon” messages have been pouring in after a popular headteacher suffered a heart attack.

Richard Cranmer, head of Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston, was taken to hospital after suffering a mild heart attack at home on Saturday last week.

Mr Cranmer, who has been at the school for about five years, is now back home and said to be recovering well, but it is not yet known how long he will be off school.

Alan Thorpe, chairman of governors, said: “He is recuperating at home and our thoughts and prayers are with him.

“In his absence, assistant headteachers Joy Shawcross and Robert Connelly will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership of the school.

“Many thanks to all those people who have contacted the school to wish Mr Cranmer a speedy recovery and to schools across the county that have offered their time and support.

“I know his family is very touched by the many kind messages they have received and wish to thank everyone for their good wishes. Thanks must also go to our church community, which has continued with its excellent support, and the Rev Nigel Tuffnell, who has been at the school providing spiritual and emotional support to staff and students.”

Mr Connelly said: “Joy and I have visited Richard at home; he is recovering well and eager to be back in school doing what he loves best.

“However, for the time being, it is important that he rests at home and concentrates on getting better. Richard is grateful for the excellent help he has received from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.”
