To help stay connected with our former students, we have teamed up with a charity called Future First who believe that every school should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community.

Summer visitors

We welcomed a group of alumni to the Summer Open Morning - they really enjoyed touring the school with Mr Rose and revisiting old haunts.

Congratulations to Sophie Cleverley (class of 2008) (in the photo gallery, right) who had her first book - The Lost Twin - published in 2015 by Harper Collins, following a creative writing course at Bath Spa University and a masters' degree.  This is the first book in a trilogy about Scarlet and Ivy, who are twins attending a creepy boarding school in the 1930s.

Laura Maddox (class of 2008) was our Guest of Honour at the Celebration Evening on 9 July 2015.  Laura 's progression as a top-class 400m sprinter continues - she recently linked up with the Great Britain team for the European Team Championships in Russia. The 25-year-old from Claverton Down was one of six named in the 4x400m relay squad. Laura said: 'It's my second GB call-up, which is fantastic, and now I will go here and work hard in training and see if I am selected to run.'
