140th Birthday Weekend Events (July 6-7)
We have enjoyed the 140th Birthday Cake (with thanks to Lucy, Year 8); gathered for the official photograph; held a Victorian Day of lessons; heard Lucy Worsley on Queen Victoria; attended the Founders and Benefactors’ Service at St Mary’s; celebrated with Old Girls, and enjoyed a giant Birthday Picnic, and day of Birthday activities. Next, we are preparing for the Birthday Weekend, 6-7 July. There is a host of events, and we warmly invite you to come and celebrate with us, at any (or all!) of the following.
