On Thursday 3rd April the School celebrated Founders Day, remembering master mariner Bryan Blundell and Reverend Robert Stythe, who through their philanthropic generosity of time, expertise and money founded the School back in 1708.
We were delighted to have Old Blue Professor Tom Greggs as our keynote speaker. Tom was a student at the School from 1992 to 1999 and was Head of School in his final year. At the age of 28 Tom was the youngest person in the country to hold a professorship, having been appointed Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Chester.
Tom delivered a fantastic address to the School, celebrating our heritage, but also inspiring our students today to give their time and efforts just as our founders did in 1708.
Highlights of the service included a reading being delivered in eleven languages by students, and the School Choir singing Peter Gabriel’s ‘Mercy Street’.
