Happy Birthday Mr Sharman!


Our pupils and staff sprang a surprise on former headmaster Colin Sharman and his wife Jen this morning to wish him a very happy 90th birthday.

With the help of the art and music departments, the children designed a card for Mr Sharman that every child in the school then signed and it was presented to him while the school's chapel choir sang 'Happy Birthday' outside his front door.

Mr Sharman saved the much-loved school from closure in 1961 starting with 58 full-boarding boys aged 7 to 13 and the school has continued to go from strength to strength with over 350 boys and girls, day and boarding, from 2 and a half to 13 in 2019. 

Happy Birthday Mr Sharman!
