Tributes have been paid to Chiswick resident Nick Sennett (50) who was killed in an accident on the A40 near Paddington earlier this week (Tuesday April 16).

Mr. Sennett was an Economics teacher at Latymer Upper School and the school was this week mourning the loss of a teacher described as highly popular with both students and staff. He had been teaching at the school for the past five years, having turned to teaching after a career in advertising.

He was married with two children and had lived in Chiswick for several years.

There were four cars involved in the accident which happened around 7.40 a.m. on Tuesday near Bishops Bridge on the A40 or Westway. The driver of a Peugeot car, aged in his thirties, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and has been released on bail pending further police investigations.

Students from the school have paid tribute to Mr. Sennett on social networking sites.

Headteacher David Goodhew said : “Nick’s colleagues, his students, both current and former, as well as their parents, are grieving for his tragic and untimely death, and our thoughts are very much with his family at this dreadful time.

"Tributes to Nick have been flooding in and it is clear he touched the lives of so many and is remembered with tremendous warmth and affection. The school has lost a great teacher, a dear tutor and a good friend."

Mr Sennett was a sixth form tutor, coached the year nine rowing team and ran the school’s Young Enterprise scheme, which helps pupils start up their own businesses.

The school flag was flown at half-mast in his memory this week.

The Hampton Road Death Investigation Unit has appealed for witnesses to contact them at 0208 941 9011 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
