Simon Robbins retirement

Those of you who attended the Annual Reunion Dinner will know that Simon Robbins, long serving teacher and Old Boy of the School retired this year. We marked the event at the Dinner by the presentation of a commerative tankard by Jason Lee (England International Hockey Player, Old Boy and once taught by Simon!).

Those of you still in Kent may have seen this article on Kent Online which was recently published as Simon closed out his final days as a teacher. Once more we pass our best wishes on to Simon for a long and happy retirement and thanks for his long service to the School.
