Students at North Kesteven School will leave early today ahead of the funeral of art teacher Roy Hazlehurst.
Mr Hazlehurst, 57, died on August 20, three weeks after being diagnosed with cancer.
He had worked at the North Hykeham school for 35 years, including ten years as assistant head teacher.
Lincoln Hockey Club, of which he was a former captain, said on its website this week that the funeral would take place at Lincoln Crematorium on Friday, September 6.
