At the request of some of our 2020 GCSE alumnae, we invited the year group to gather for a catch-up over tea and cake with one another and some of their teachers on Wednesday 4 January at the Senior School.
This was a chance for the group, whose GCSE examinations were disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, to reunite and share news of their first terms at university, in training, or on gap years, after completing their A Levels or IB in summer 2022.
It was a lively gathering with the buzz and laughter of happy reminiscences, exchange of recent news and lots of discussion about how university courses, apprenticeships and gap year jobs and activities were going. Staff and alumnae greatly enjoyed the occasion, which was rounded off with the chance to tour around the Senior School buildings, revisiting old haunts and favourite places, happily bumping into a few more staff and taking a good number of selfies as mementos along the way.
The tea, cake and catch-up was such an enjoyable occasion, with good feedback from the alumnae attending, that we plan to offer an informal recent leavers gathering at the beginning of each calendar year. To ensure that you receive these or other invitations for alumni and supporters, please contact the Development Office on firstname.lastname@example.org with your current contact details and preferred contact channels if you have not heard from us recently. We look forward to seeing you in school at an event soon!
