Educationalist Leonard Sealey died on August 5, aged 80. Previously educated at Loughborough College and Peterborough Training College, he undertook postgraduate studies at the University of Leicester, which resulted in the award of Master in Education in 1964.
He had served as a naval officer in the Second World War, finally working on the Enigma codes, and had pursued a career as an aeronautical engineer, but then became an infant teacher and headmaster, and an advisor to more than 200 schools in Leicestershire.
An advocate of the 'open school' movement, he worked for a time in the late 1960s at the Education Development Centre in Newton, Massachusetts. Later in his career he was Principal of the North Buckinghamshire College of Education.
