STARTING in the Chapel, the group were told by the school’s archivist about the history of the college from its establishment in 1867 to the present day. From there they were shown the war memorial panels and the oldest part of the college, known as Larkfield.

The tour finished with an exclusive look at the new facilities of the Project 150 development, yet to be officially opened, such as the sports centre, swimming pool and dining hall.
