A Week One Summer

Posted: 19th November 2021

The autobiography of Floyd Steadman.

You may have seen in the media that one of our Governors, Mr Floyd Steadman, published his autobiography in October, ‘A Week One Summer’.  This is the story of a life lived with perseverance and integrity.  From a childhood filled with adversity, Mr Steadman strove to be the best he could be.  Captain of Saracens, husband and father, inspiring teacher and latterly, headmaster, Mr Steadman’s life, as Mark Evans in his foreword writes, ‘is fascinating on a personal and societal level.  Floyd has always been proud of his heritage and fought hard to achieve at a time when racism in the UK was far more overt than it is today.  He never backed down, refused to accept that he would ever be anything less than a success and continues to strive for more progress and diversity; all this at the same time as being incredibly popular and loved by those of us fortunate enough to know him well.’

Available to buy at £11.99, we would recommend Mr Steadman’s book as an inspiring and fascinating read.
