Fifty years on!

LRGS is all about the best of the old and the new. It was excellent last weekend to host a reunion for former pupils who left school fifty years ago – and wonderfully for some of their teachers as well. 

Some have retained close links and been back to the school many times, while other were revisiting LRGS for the very first time. Their varied careers encompassed medicine, art, education, business, law, church leadership and steam engine restoration amongst many others! 

One of that year group was Kevin Roberts, who went on to become CEO of Saatchi and Saatchi. We are grateful to him for running two stimulating sessions for the Lower Sixth on “Leadership in a crazy world.”

The timing was poignant as it coincided with our current Sixth Formers’ final days of lessons before study leave and exams. 

Note to the Upper Sixth – put 2068 in your diaries now!
