A memorial service to celebrate the life of Leeds teacher Ann Maguire who was stabbed to death at school will take place at Leeds Town Hall.

Ann Maguire, 61, was stabbed in front of her pupils at Corpus Christi Catholic College and died at Leeds General Infirmary on April 28.

Members of the public are welcome to join invited guests to celebrate Ann’s life and her contribution to education in the city throughout her teaching career, which spanned more than 40 years, on Monday September 29 at noon.

The memorial service has been planned in conjunction with Mrs Maguire’s family so that there is an opportunity for everyone who wants to honour Ann’s memory to attend.

Coun Keith Wakefield, leader of Leeds City Council said: “Ann Maguire spent her whole career educating, nurturing and supporting generations of young people at Corpus Christi Catholic College. This public memorial service will give us all an opportunity to celebrate her life and her outstanding contribution to education in the city.”

The Ann Maguire Arts Educational Fund has been set up in Ann’s memory and donations can be made via:

The fund will provide bursaries and funding for the enhancement and personal development of young people under 18 years old through music, drama, language and dance.
