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.
Martyn Lawrence has kindly sent in a copy of the 1965 all School photo.
We have previously shared the news of the death of Peter Highton (1939-1947). OB Martyn Lawrence contacted us to provide some recollections of his friendship with Peter.
Sad news reaches us of the recent death of Bill Usher, who attended the School from 1939-1944.
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.
Thanks to Dave Palmer we can report that current School pupils are demonstrating great spirit and charity in responding to the War in Ukraine.
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.
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.
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.
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.
