Gilbert Hannam: the founder of our College

Janet Gibbs 0 371

Last week on Thursday we celebrated Gilbert Hannam day. Gilbert Hannam was a believer that education should be free and he founded our College in 1672, nearly 350 years ago, for the education of 12 poor protestant boys. His wish that poor students should be educated for free was maintained until the Grammar School merged with the neighbouring  Secondary Modern in 1966.

Last week Mr Edwards announced in his blog that students will be writing the blog once per fortnight and that he will write it in the other week. Other groups of students will also take turns to update you about what they are working on in our College. We have kept the notices and the sports results so that we are all kept up to date! This blog has been written jointly by:  Alex Martirez, Emerson Fisher, Erin O'Sullivan, Cleopatra Dickens, Katie-Mae White and Amber Houghton-Wilson.

Changes to this blog

You will notice that the title of the blog has changed. Last week, our new Head Boy and Head Girl wrote the Principal’s blog. It was great to read about them and also what they want to do for our College. They mentioned more inter-house competitions, a focus on recycling (going plastic free) and also greater links between Key Stage 5 and the rest of the school. I look forward to seeing these items moved forward in the future.
