You may have seen on our Facebook page repeated mention of the 1980s Reunion. It was a spectacular event bringing together over one hundred old girls from that decade. The event, which was held on Zoom, included a film of the school as it is now, an interview with two headmistresses, a photo gallery, a bake-off competition, a book club, a Wychwood quiz, a performance by the 80s Reunion Choir specially recorded for the event and a cracking soundtrack of 80s hits!
