  It is with great sadness that we share the news that John Murday, the former Head Teacher of Herbert Strutt Primary School has passed away.  John was Head Teacher from 2000 until 2012 and was instrumental in progressing the move from the old school on Derby Road to the new school we presently occupy. Before he retired John used to remember annually the day all the children walked from the old school to their new school which was quite a sight and even made the evening news.  When John retired he presented the school with the ‘John Murday Cup’ which is still given out each year for achievement.
