This site is a tribute to the memory of Joel Langford, who was born on February 22, 2002.
Joel was lively, headstrong and enthusiastic, with a dogged determination. He faced many challenges, but succeeded at the things he put his mind to, most recently his outstanding GCSE results.
Joel's desire to be a role model for younger children facing similar challenges is part of what has prompted the decision to leave a legacy for the Special Educational Needs Department at Great Marlow School. We also would like Joel to be remembered for what he brought into our lives.
All the staff at Great Marlow School accepted Joel for who he was, but the Special Educational Needs Department played a significant role by providing him with a safe space throughout his Secondary Education. Money donated will go towards this phenomenal work, which is often overlooked and under resourced, helping the SEN staff to continue to support other young people.
Thank you for your generosity and for honouring Joel's memory in this way.
He is much loved and will always be remembered.
