KING'S SCHOOL WORCESTER
REUNION OF LEAVERS
Well, it's all over now apart from the washing up and tidying away. The weather was kind to us and a great day was had by all starting with a tour led by current students to see how much has changed in the School since we left and then a barbecue in the School Gardens. The alumni team laid on a fascinating display of old photographs in the boathouse - which itself is of course an innovation since we left the School.
It was particularly notable to see guests at the celebration who were on the staff when we were there: Mr. Stacey and Mr. Bridges (as we remember them from those days!). We were also delighted to meet Matthew Armstrong, Headmaster, Liz Elliot, the Development Director and Sophie Borrillo-McLellan, Head of Alumni Relations. Sophie did much to facilitate the reunion.
Special thanks must go to Jeremy Wright whose idea the whole event was and who obtained the whole-hearted support of the Alumni Office in making arrangements and handling bookings. We think there were at least 80 people present including partners, wives and guests. Fortunately, Jeremy had arranged for name badges as otherwise most of us would have been wandering around trying to guess names! Sadly, some of the people we wanted to invite could not make it, could not be traced, or had passed away in the last 50 years.
I do not suppose we will have another event like this for the 67/68/69 leavers but I can commend the idea to other past scholars of King's School. In particular, it was welcome to have the reunion in the School grounds rather than in London or another place remote for some of us.
Well done Jeremy and KSW!
PS: If anyone wants to contact someone who was there or for that matter someone who was not, I am sure the Alumni Office will help in making a contact. As of the weekend of the reunion, the list of guests including OVs was still available at this link. The photographs taken by the professional photographer are available on the School website and can be viewed at this link. There are two pages of photos and this is the second page.
