Old Dolphins’ Day 2022

It was delightful to welcome back Old Dolphins and former members of staff for Old Dolphins’ Day in September. It was a happy reunion of old friends spanning the generations, with the most senior Old Dolphins present, Joy and Pamela, having left the school in 1947! At the other end of the scale, it was exciting to welcome back about 50 younger ODs who had left in 2017 and were therefore celebrating the fifth anniversary of their leaving.
