On Saturday 25th February the first event in our anniversary year was held in the parish church, High Wycombe.
After a welcome by the Headmaster, Mr Page, the audience of parents, governors, alumni and teachers, past and present listened to a sermon by former chaplain Peter Toller and a selection of readings. (The text below was delivered by the deputy head Boy, Kurun Kumar) The RGS choir performed two pieces.
On our 450th anniversary, whilst we celebrate the school we are today, and the school we hope to become in future years, we should also cast our minds back in reflection. Cast our minds back to our first recollections of the School that housed us for so many of our early years.
From our humble beginnings in the old Hospital of St John down on Easton Street, to the grand red brick building that greets our pupils now we are fortunate to have a vibrant community at the RGS, with our successes and struggles well documented throughout our 450 years.
