Many had not returned in over two decades and were treated to a trip down memory lane by the WBS official tour guide, Mr John Whitfield (79-07S) (insert pic) Whilst the frontage of the school had barely changed, the relatively recent additions of the 150 building,

The Jonathan Edwards Sports Centre and the new 6th form and library didn’t fail to impress.  Old Boys and Girls had the opportunity to look around their old classrooms and meet some of their old teachers.

Former pupils came from as far as Hong Kong, New Zealand, America, UAE and Scotland for the Reunion Dinner in the Karslake Hall where they sampled a three course dinner of a very different quality to what they remembered back in their day.
