OSE Regional Lunch – North West, 21st September 2019

OSE London Drinks – Royal Yacht Club, November 2019. Twenty OSE from all generations joined us at the Royal Yacht Club for drinks and nibbles at the first capital drinks in a while. We had a couple of sets of fathers and sons attending together, including Simon Munger (C, 1978-1982) who happened to be in London for a business trip whilst living in Germany, joined by his stepson Nicholas Ray (H, 1997-2002).

Yet another wonderful occasion was shared with OSE in the North West. A contingent travelled up from Oxford: the Society’s Hon Sec John Wiggins and Sub-Warden Tony Darby collecting the Vice President David Smart (C, 1968- 1972) and James Synge (B, 1964-1969) along the way. Arriving at the Royal Liverpool Golf Course in glorious weather, we gathered, for the last time under the direction of one of our most enduring OSE, Michael Cox (D, 1959-1964). After a well lubricated and sumptuous luncheon, our host introduced the Sub-Warden who spoke about the School, current and future before taking questions. In reply, Michael spoke of his long association with the Society but then announced his standing down as the Regional Rep.​His successful efforts to revive OSE gatherings in this corner of the UK have been much appreciated and his will be a hard act to follow.


OSE Regional Dinner – Newcastle, 28th February 2020 Fourteen OSE joined Matthew Albrighton, Deputy Head Academic, John Wiggins and Rachael Henshilwood at Pizzeria Santana. Many of them were still rowing, including Andrew Soward (E, 1956-1961) and Clive Hole (D, 1954-1959). It was astonishing to see how much these gentlemen, spanning over 60 years, had in common. David Dewar (D, 1959-1963) also recounted tremendous stories, accompanied by his sister Linda.

OSE Regional Lunch – Edinburgh, 29th February 2020

Property: Teddies Talks Live – Henry Wood House, London, 4th February 2020 Over 40 pupils, parents and OSE associated with the property sector joined the School’s architect who presented details of the final stage of the Teddies Quad Development. Upper Sixth pupils networked with OSE and parents gaining valuable insights and connections. Simon Talbot-Williams (A, 1974-1979) as he introduced Nick Wood

Twenty-four OSE attended for a wonderful lunch at Howies in Edinburgh: 12 men who left Teddies between 1955 and 1975 and 12 women who left between 2016 and 2019! There was much reminiscing and enquiry about how Teddies had changed over the years but one thing was very apparent, the spirit and values of Teddies pupils still remain very much the same.
