Staff and students at an Epsom school will be marking its 90th birthday on Thursday with a range of events from artwork to displays of technology for guests including an MP and the oldest former student.
Glyn School will also welcome former pupil Barry Wordsworth, a former principal conductor and current Conductor Laureate of the BBC Concert Orchestra, musical director of the Royal Ballet and current principal conductor of the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra.
The school’s oldest surviving former student, Wing Commander John Bell, 92, has been invited to take part in the celebrations along with local MP Chris Grayling and the Mayor of Epsom and Ewell, Councillor George Crawford QPM.
Wing Commander Bell recently visited the school he left in 1939 before going on to serve with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, including with the famous 617 Dambusters squadron. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and took part in more than 50 operations.
The anniversary celebrations will also feature highlights from the recent school musical production and art displays will also be on show.
“The evening promises to be a memorable celebration of 90 years of Glyn. We look forward to commemorating the fantastic contribution Glyn has made to the local area with students past and present and their families,” said Olivia Buckley and Jack Pepper, Head Girl and Head Boy.
The celebratory event will be held in The Proctor Hall from 7pm.
