Final centenary Dinner in Chapel

Mariam Owens, Alumnae Relations Manager

It was an evening of fine food and fond memories on Friday 8 March as we hosted our final dinner to celebrate the Chapel centenary.

We were delighted to be joined not only by a range of alumnae spanning the years from 1982 to 2019, but also by former members of staff Clive Morris, Olivier Hubert and Emilie Prior.

The evening began with drinks and canapes in Old School Hall, accompanied by delightful clarinet music from our students. The guests were then shown around our new Sixth Form Centre, the Benedict Building, before returning to Old School Hall for a welcome address by Headmistress Rebecca Dougall.

Everyone then made their way to the beautifully dressed Chapel where they enjoyed catching up with old friends, reminiscing and swapping anecdotes over a delicious three-course meal including ballontine of guinea fowl with wild mushrooms, braised baby leek, bean and thyme cottage pie and blood orange tart with blood orange marmalade and coconut ice cream.
