Sheila Perks MBE

Posted: 24/09/2021

We were deeply saddened to hear that Sheila Perks MBE died earlier this week. Joining Bromsgrove School as a netball coach in 1991, her teaching style was unparalleled.

Many Old Bromsgrovians benefited from her incredible passion, and even after she left the School in 2005, current pupils were able to gain so much from her coaching through Ryland, the netball club that she founded, or through the Worcestershire County Netball pathway and England Netball. Sheila leaves behind a huge legacy, not only at Bromsgrove School but in the wider community and beyond. One of her favourite quotes will stay with all those who knew her, “believe and you will achieve”.

The Executive team echo the sentiments of everyone in the Bromsgrove family, past and present, in expressing their condolences to a great friend of the School.


Bromsgrove School is a co-educational, independent school.
