Old Wymondhamians Travel Award
Each year the Old Wymondhamians provide a Travel Bursary to a current Year 13 student. Pupils undertaking some form of travel and activity after leaving the College, either in their gap year or before going on to further education, are encouraged to apply for the award. The activity should, ideally, have some purpose or benefit for persons other than the student and is awarded at the end of the Easter term.
|To recognise the 65th Anniversary of the College and to raise funds for the Pavilion Appeal a Halloween Ball will be held in the Sports Hall on the 29th October. The Ball will be a Halloween themed event with a 5 course dinner, an auction, magician, live music and much more.
The sports hall will be transformed with blackout drapes, special effect lighting and dry ice - even the menu is themed appropriately !! The evening promises to be a magical night for staff, parents and former students. Please click on the picture for ticket details.
There have been some great donations for the Auction already but if you are able to offer an auction prize or know of someone who may be able to, please get in touch.
There are also commercial sponsor packages available, please contact Justin Smith for details.
Apologies if anyone went to the Tyburn Pub on 23rd July. It had closed but unfortunately a note couldn't be put on here as I was on holiday. Philip emailed as many people as he could and a group did meet at The Metropolitan Bar in Marylebone.
New Hall Reunion

We have been advised of the passing of Allan 'Fuzzy' Chilvers. Allan was part of the Grammar School intake in 1951 and he used to operate the projector for the Saturday film shows we had in those early days. He passed away in Dorchester Hospital and the funeral is in Belper, Derbyshire.
We have also been advised of the passing of Michael Gooday on 27th June aged 79 years. He was a former Vice Principal of the College, retiring from the College around 1993 after some 22 years’ service.
