This year’s Newsletter is here. Click below to see for yourself!

At a previous Annual Reunion Dinner Colin Bamford was asked if we could make all the  Newsletters from previous years available online. After a herculean effort, he did just that and here they are. Thanks Colin!!

A big thank you to Paul Atkinson who sent copies of the 1971 and 1972 Newsletters, to Ken Webb (1954-61) for lending his file of Newsletters, and also to Peter Monether (1963-70) for scanning his copies! Ian Stephen (1949-54) sent a box full of goodies which included an extra seven Newsletters…..thank you all.

And thank you Colin Bamford (1965-1967)!

A night of Wine and Revelry – Tickets for Bacchae on sale now October 12th 2023

The Next of which is the school production of “Bacchae” –  their own modern rewrite of this Ancient Greek tragedy. Don’t be put off by the genre, it’s a riveting story. If you don’t know it, it is a play about the Greek god Dionysus, (god of wine and revelry) and his journey for retribution. The storyline is full of irony, cruel gods and revenge!

Tickets have now gone live on Eventbrite so if any Old Alts are interested click on the link below for tickets: A Performance of ‘Bacchae’ Tickets, Thu 12 Oct 2023 at 19:00 | Eventbrite
