After successfully participating in Heritage Open Days, England’s largest festival of heritage and culture, for a number of years, our 2019 event held earlier this month proved to be our most successful yet.
Over the course of three days a constant stream of parents, Old Blues and members of the public were guided round our beautiful buildings by our excellent team of Sixth Form student tour guides.
Mini organ recitals, led by our talented Year 13 students Simon Cheung and Dan Greenway and supported by Old Blues Harry Spain, from the Class of 2016, and Tim Harvey from the Class of 1983, proved to be one of the most popular features of the event. Visitors were also offered the chance to try their hand at playing the ‘king of instruments’.
Illustrated presentations highlighting the architecture of the School buildings as well as the School’s 311 year history, were delivered Harry Spain and Blue Coat For All Project Manager Peter Elson, in the splendidly restored Shirley Hall.
The School’s history was also on display with an eclectic display of items from the Archive, which is being collated and digitised for the first time as part of Blue Coat For All.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in this project, in particular our Sixth Form students.
