The cannon fired at the end of Gaudy signalled the beginning of an exciting period of development at Teddies – and a hive of activity on the Quad. Contractors are busy laying the groundwork for the start of our project to create a new Study Centre, Library and Hall. At the same time, we are active behind the scenes planning our new co-ed House on Field Side. Both projects are scheduled for completion by 2020. It is a huge honour to be leading the school through this pivotal moment in its history. The Quad Development will create university-level facilities specifically designed to support our increasingly successful academic programme. The new Hall, big enough to allow our growing community to come together for countless functions and events, will be a stunning addition to our campus.

Alongside pictures of our major projects, this issue of the Chronicle brings you an in-depth interview with our former Chairman, Mike Stanfield OSE, who remains a Governor and is Chair of The North Wall Trust; a piece celebrating the global 50th anniversary of the International Baccalaureate Diploma; a review of the first 10 years of the Friends of St Edward’s; and all the sunny highlights of the Summer Term and Gaudy Week. I wish you an enjoyable and restful August.
