Rhubarb 2020


ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b

r h u b a r b INTRODUCTION Two important areas of school life have their own brand identity: The St Edward’s School Society and The North Wall. The OSE logo has been designed to compliment the St Edward’s logo - with the use of the same typeface for the Namestyle: Gill Nova. Welcome to the 2020

The primary logo colour is green. It is recommended that this is used in the majority of instances so that it can be easily recognised and to consistency across your communications.


It has been a year like no other and as we look back over the past 12 months it is incredible to reflect on the huge changes we have all experienced. We hope this magazine celebrates some of the amazing things our OSE have achieved and brings to life our plans for the next year. Producing it has certainly been challenging at times given the recent circumstances so we hope you will forgive anything unusual! The North Wall logo has been designed as a stand alone logo - but complements our logo. We illustrate ow bot logos c be u ed together with the school logo over the next few pages.

As you will know numerous OSE events sadly had to be cancelled. Alumnet, however, our new social media channel, allows us to connect virtually, and whilst restrictions continue to limit face-to-face interaction, we will look at developing our virtual links and social media channels. Further details on page 81.

We wish you all a very happy and healthy next few months and look forward to welcoming you back and seeing many of you as soon as we are able, hopefully in the not-so-distant future. Emily Rowbotham , Editor

This year we have seen a number of changes to the OSE Team . We welcomed Rachael Henshilwood as new Development Director and more recently Emily Rowbotham as Community Engagement Manager. The core team of Emma Grounds, Tracy Payne and David Smart were all furloughed during the start of lockdown and it was lovely to finally reconnect as a team in early August.

Charles Cooper (G, 1961-1966) stepped down as President this year after two successful years and we would like to thank him for his unwavering support and direction. David Smart (C, 1968-1972) has taken up this role – read about his vision on page 3.

2020 also saw the announcement that Warden Stephen Jones will be retiring at the end of the next academic year and the subsequent appointment of Alastair Chirnside as the 14th Warden who will join us in September 2021. Teddies has

At School we have witnessed ‘ Virtual Teddies ’ as the School moved online for the Summer Term. Whilst logistically challenging, it was a resounding success and we celebrate some excellent A Level and IB Results on page 32.

much to thank Stephen for and we look forward to inviting you all back to a Special Gaudy in June 2021

We have also watched the largest development in the School’s history come to its three-year completion with thanks to the extraordinary work of Stephen Withers Green and Richard Hayes (Estates Bursar). More details on page 30.

so you can say your goodbyes.

We have very exciting plans for the OSE Community – do keep in touch – details can be found on the back page.
