OTs spanning four decades, and their guests, arrived at Tonbridge on the morning of Saturday 14 October to enjoy the annual Old Tonbridgian Reunion.
The day began with coffee, tea and pastries in Old Big School. Tours of the grounds and the new or refurbished buildings were led by the current 3rd Year boys, and many enjoyed an exhibition about Stokoe in the Smythe Library.
Reverend David Peters and Reverend Fergus Butler-Gallie (PS 05-10) welcomed OTs back to Chapel for a morning service, where the School song was sung and guests enjoyed listening to the Choir and Reverend Butler-Gallie's sermon.
Sir Anthony Seldon, OT President, delivered a witty and occasionally interactive speech during drinks in Old Big School, and then our guests enjoyed a delicious lunch in Big School. Headmaster James Priory spoke after lunch, regailing the gathering with news of the School.
A good game of rugby followed on The Fifty, with Tonbridge 2nd XV losing to Sutton Valance 1st XV, and then OTs were invited back to their old houses to enjoy a cup of tea, slice of cake and a chat with the housemaster, matron and some of the current pupils.
With very many thanks to all those who joined us for the day, some of whom had travelled a long way to be with us. We hope to welcome you all back to the School again soon.
