Stephen Bedelle

It is with great sadness we learn of the passing of Stephen Bedelle on 15th June 2022.  Stephen attended the School 1969-1974 with his twin brother, Paul.

Richard Evans 1943-2022

It is with regret we report the death of Old Bordenian Richard Evans in April 2022. Richard attended the School from 1954-62 and had been living in Epsom until his death. 

2022 OBA Annual Reunion & Dinner

After two missing years, there was much anticipation about our 2022 Annual Reunion and Dinner. A chance to reconnect with friends and make new ones. A chance to socialise again without Government mandate. It did not disappoint.

Peter Highton

It is with sadness we report the death of Peter Highton who attended the School from 1939 to 1947.  The Highton family was linked to the School for three generations from the 1930s to the 1970s.

Peter's son David informed us of his passing and provided these words.

Article on School evacuation

We often reflect on the adversity facing us in the current times and note the upheaval for the School and its students during the pandemic.  It is therefore timely to be reminded of a perhaps more disruptive upheaval when the School was evacuated during the Second World War. 

OBA recognition of School staff

The objectives of our Association include assiting the School.  We have worked to contribute to support Pupils' wellbeing and amenity and the fabric of the School.  The Staff who work in the School are equally part of that equation.  After two calendar years of working under the shadow of the pandemic, the Association thought we should offer a small, but fun thank you to the Staff.
