James Sherwood – 1983 - 2011
James Sherwood attended Shoreham College between 1995 and 1999 and he was in Rodney house. After his A-Levels, James read journalism at the University of Central Lancashire where he graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in 2004. On leaving university, James decided to become a technology journalist. Throughout his career he had been on TV several times as an expert on mobile phones. He also met and worked with many industry leaders and celebrity figures and left a lasting impression on all those he met as a genuine friend who always made them laugh.
Tragically, James died on June 4th 2011 during an epileptic seizure having just returned from a holiday in Los Angeles and prior to starting a great new job as an account director at a global media company in London. Although an extremely sad time for his family, they have been able to celebrate James' many achievements in his far too short 28 year life.
