Dr Mason was a former headmaster of Reading School and principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools. RGS headmaster Jonathan Webb said: "It is with great sadness I pass on the news of the death of Dr Peter Mason after a short illness. Peter was chair of governors when I joined RGS in 2017 and was a highly respected educationalist. He stood down in 2018 but remained very much a supporter of the school."
