Visitors to WBS: 2018

We are always delighted to welcome visitors to the school and enjoy the memories that they share with us. 
Here is selection of WBS friends we have met this year....

Thank you to John Hayhow (60-68B) who has very kindly donated this wonderful Exmoor vase to the school. It is a beautiful example of Paul Thornhill’s work and depicts the legendary cross country course. 
It will be treasured.

It was great to meet Jim Chambers (88-95B) and his family.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Russell MacPhee (75-88G) and his son Monty. We had a great time reminiscing about his time at  WBS.

Biology teacher Elma Rushe was delighted to meet one of her old pupils, David Sedgwick (99-04G)

Javaid Khamisani (77-80F) reminisced about his cricketing career.

Many of you will remember the Holt family who were such an integral part of school life for many years. Simon Holt (67-74B) and Derek’s wife, Elizabeth, joined us to relive some happy memories.

Thank you to Charles Brewer (89-98F) for sharing his experiences and knowledge at a school career lunch.

We spent a very pleasant  afternoon in the company of Michael Western (44-46C) and his wife, Janice who were visiting North Devon from St Albans. Michael (aka Nipper) joined the school under the headship of Sam Howells in 1944 and clearly remembers the school performance of “Trail By Jury”
