Harry Gration MBE, 1950–2022

Everyone at Selby High School would like to pay tribute to broadcaster Harry Gration MBE who passed away unexpectedly at the weekend.

Always a proud Yorkshireman, Harry visited Selby High in January 2014 to officially open our new Hemmingway computing suite, giving students and staff the opportunity to meet him and show him around the school.

His love of the region, local culture and sport was infectious to anyone who watched him on TV or spent time with him and he’ll be sadly missed.

Our thoughts are with Harry's family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.
