Princess Anne flies in

News 02.11.2020 Whole School

On Wednesday 14th October HRH The Princess Royal visited the School, to celebrate our 425th anniversary. Arriving on the playing fields by helicopter, she met a selection of pupils and staff from both parts of the School, before unveiling a plaque outside the Chapel to record her visit. Alas, COVID-19 restrictions meant that everyone presented had to wear masks, as did HRH, and strict social distancing meant that this was a very different occasion to the previous Royal Visits (The Queen visited in 1965, and the Duke of Gloucester has been here twice). In the circumstances, we were incredibly lucky this visit went ahead at all. The School looked at its very best, and it reflected very well on the gritty determination of HRH to keep the flag flying.
