On Saturday 7th June The Blue Coat School welcomed back our Old Blues who left the School during the 1980s.
Headteacher Mrs Debbie Silcock welcomed guests and gave a fantastic overview of the School as it is today. Former Headteacher Mr Sandy Tittershill spoke about his memories of the School during the 1980s and Old Blue Carl Cross from the Class of 1989 encouraged the Old Blues to stay in touch with the School.
We were delighted that former teachers Mr Edmund Crighton, Mr John Rees (who still teaches basketball at the School) and Mr Harry Marsden were able to attend, as well as Mr Keith Caulkin who continues to teach at the School today.
Guests enjoyed reminiscing over their time at the School, looking at old photos and Squirrel magazines and being shown round the School by Year 12 students.
“It was fantastic to see so many of our Old Blues return to the School and to hear what everyone has been up to since leaving – we hope that we will be able to keep in touch with everyone. We look forward to meeting many more of our Old Blues in the near future.”
Mrs Debbie Silcock
