On Saturday May 14th we held a reunion for pupils who attended the school between 1967 and 1983 when the school finally closed. A lot of diligent detective work on social media enabled us to contact over 80 from this cohort and over 50 turned up at the lower school hall for greetings, tea and short speeches from Dan, Tim, Peter Sandell, Peter Thomas and Andreas. Special commemorative T Shirts were on offer to those who signed up for membership and then we walked along Weston Park to The Queens pub for refreshments and further reminiscing. 5 ex members of staff attended, John Young, Clive Blenkinsop, John Leeming, Micky Fitch and Nava Kahans. 9 copies of Robert Baynes History of The School were sold, depleting our stock to just 20. We recruited 25 new members for the OSA, a welcome replenishment to our numbers. This was a very successful event and I am sure it will be repeated sometime soon.
