Major Tom Wills (Chairman of the Trustees of Rendcomb College) planted a Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) tree in the grounds of the College in memory of Sir Michael Angus (1930 – 2010) who was Chairman of Governors at Rendcomb College from 2001–2010.  

 

Sir Michael was one of Britain's most influential industrialists; he made his career in Unilever before becoming president of the CBI, chairman of Whitbread Breweries and Boots.  Rendcomb considered itself exceedingly fortunate to have secured his impressive services, initially as a governor and then as Chairman of Governors.

 

Gerry Holden, Headmaster commented “We have much to thank Sir Michael for during his time in office.   During his chairmanship the College grew both numerically and in reputation; he was always a tremendous supporter of the school.”
