Ruth Bellord

It is with sadness we learn of the death of Ruth Bellord, School Secretary from 1975-2000.  Many Old Bordenians who remember Bryan Short will also remember “Mrs Bellord” from when they had to go to the secretary’s office. 

New Wellbeing Garden

One of our Association objectives is to support the School in financial and practical ways.  We already fund the School Minibus and we have engaged the Head to suggest other projects we could assist with. One such project has now been identified.

We have been informed of the death of David Cross who was a pupil at the School from 1940-1946.  His daughter has been in contact to tell us he died in February aged 91. She says he often spoke about the School and was 'very proud' of being an Old Bordenian.
