Saturday 21st March
This event has sadly not been cancelled: OL v LP Community Sport Morning: Football and Hockey.
"We had sunshine and twenty years to cram into a few hours. It was worth every minute. To see so many people from the class of '95 together, first in a period of silence, then back to our old noisy ways - with a few partners and children now - was magical. To be with the people who made it so special once more - I would not have missed for the world.”
"Leighton Park felt like home, rather than a boarding school."
Although we love welcoming OLs and Friends back to Leighton Park, we know many of you are too far away to come to events and reunions at the school. To help keep our wider community in touch, we have arranged several regional meet ups, enabling OLs to get together with others in their local area.
Regional events have been held in Cambridge, Oxford, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds, as well as Hong Kong and Brunei.
If you would like to start up a regional network or help organise an event in your area, please get in touch with the Development Office.
As part of the school community, you are welcome to come back to Leighton Park for various current school events and activities, including the JBH Speech Competition, Music Concerts and Productions.
This year, OLs Michael Binyon and Dame Alice Hudson judged the annual JBH competition. Find out more about the event and the experience of being a judge below.
JBH 2017 Judges: John Chapman (Head 1986 to 1996), Robert Harvey (F 1967), Naomi Alderson (G 2011), Rauf Bayraktaroglu (G 1991)
It is wonderful to welcome back members of our community each year to join the panel of the annual JBH competition
The eagerly anticipated annual JBH competition was again a wonderful evening.
We were thrilled to be joined by OLs Dame Alice Hudson (and former JBH winner), Michael Binyon and from the University of Reading, Prof Clare Furneaux who formed the judging panel.
Also joining us were former winners and participants Guy Smith, Lord Quentin Davies, Dave Goss, Simon McCoy and Manu Sidhu. Guy commented that the heckling was much tougher than he remembered and Lord Davies was very impressed by the calibre of all the competitors.
Lots of laughter, shared memories and lively conversation at drinks for OLs at The Antelope Pub, Belgravia in November. Legendary teachers Mark Simmons and John Allinson were able to answer so many questions. Old friends were reunited and new friendships were made.
Hoping to do it all again in the summer.
