A BUILDING at Magdalen College School will be named after a pupil who died in 1968 after his brother donated over one million pounds to the school.

The Richard Record Sixth Form Building will be formally opened next month by Nobel laureate Sir Tim Hunt.

Mr Record was an upper-sixth form student at the school when he died suddenly almost 50 years ago.

His brother Neil Record, an alumnus and vice chairman of the school, made the donation in order to commemorate his brother.

On a video on the school’s website, Mr Record said: “I could list the things [Richard] could and did do as a result of being at MCS.

“So it occurred to me as a way of trying to allow something of his life to persist, I thought ‘have his name persist’.”

Neil Record is the chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs, as well as the founder of Record Currency Management, a company with a market cap of £85 million.
